Are you using hardware RAID and/or X?  I've had occasional problems with 
'stock' hardware RAID drivers on Dell hardware.  Check and see if Dell 
has their own driver available on their download site.

I had a identical problem with the 2650's (ATI Rage) and X above 800x600 
resolution.  I solved that one by turning off X and using VNC or 
displaying back to my Linux workstation whenever I absolutely needed a 
GUI (like for Oracle installs).
