I once encountered a similar, seemingly random lockup problem with a 
dual-Xeon box with a pair of built-in GigE NICs, one of which was a 
Broadcom.  A bug in the kernel or broadcom driver was the culprit, and 
we swapped out the mobo for a dual Intel e1000 NIC model.  I believe it 
was in the RH 8.0 days.

Have you searched through the RHEL bugs database?  That's how we figured 
out what was going on.
