Argh! I've set up the "kopt=rootdelay=9" argument in the "menu.lst" file
of GRUB on my three machines, but one of them has crashed again this

I'm beginning to wonder if I'm not facing an hardware problem. Well, I
guess I'll have to switch one of the servers to the officially supported
RHEL 5, and see what happens...

Anyway, thanks to everyone for the help.
