Personally, I blame the kernel 2.4.x. I have been experiencing them for
almost a year now: first pretty often, now perhaps one per month.

In some of the crashes I have had (suse 7.3) I was able to switch to the
messages console (#10), and saw the kernel dumping crash logs. Usually,
kswap, klog fails. Then, services like cron or syslog dies, meaning that
we will not see anything on the log files. If the crash is bad, keyboard
doesn't respond, and NumLock and CapLock blinks alternatively.

I have a pentium IV, and the temperature is normal.

There are entries in the suse sdb about these crashes, but not too
helpful. Try to disable apic in lilo (append = "disableapic). In my case,
not using kdm, but gdm to log in, helped. If your video is nvidia, don't
press any key while graphic mode is initializing.
