Please upgrade the system and raid bios to the newest versions if not 
already. There are some timing issue fixes in the newest versions that 
could address this problem:

SCSI RAID: LSI Logic PERC 4e/Si, Firmware, Multi Language, PowerEdge 
1850, v.516A, A01 (02/03/2005)

"1. Increased memory timing margins to address the following potential 
symptoms: System hangs during operating system installs or other heavy 
I/O, Windows Blue Screens referencing "Kernel Data Inpage Errors" or 
Linux Megaraid timeouts/errors."
