    Linux usually logs stuff like that to /var/log/messages

    You can also check /etc/syslog.conf to see if a different place is specified.

    You might want to try upgrading your kernel. We had some stability issues with 2.6.x up untill they released 2.6.12.

    Panics are rarely, if ever logged, though you may see an oops or something prior to that. By the time it needs to panic, it's confused enough that you probably don't want it trying to write into the filesystem.

    sata and scsi drivers cause oopps errors and eventually panics alot in the 2.6.9 editions of the kernel. They stopped happening as often once it got up to 2.6.12. 2.6.13.x is pretty stable

    OK i ran a memtest and it passes, now the server did go in panic.

    I called, they hooked up a monitor and they said it said.
    "cant think" and bank 4 isn't working. What do you suppose i do now? ill remove bank 4 and 3 run the server again and see.
