Search this list archives, we have talked a lot about that same problem.
If you use reiserfs, add the option "barrier=none" in the fstab for all
reiserfs partitions, like this:

/dev/hdb6 / reiserfs defaults,barrier=none 1 1

My crashes were ramdom, about one a day, but now it seems stable. Don't
ask me what that options does, I didn't find it at the reiser site docs.
