I initially tought it might just be X locking up, so I tried the copy
from the Console and noticed the stack dump.
Switched back to 2.6.9 this morning, copied around 200 GB of data, and
since that worked I was able to add the 200GB drive back into the
degradded Raid 5 array which rebuilt fine.
Run memtest over night a few times to test the ram, but I'm blaming the
kernel package as I have not had an issue all day, the machine only
lasted 5 minutes (under load) with the newer kernel.
Would be nice to know what exactly the problem is but I have no leads at
this stage. I am using two different IDE controllers in this machine so
it might be a driver issue in the newer kernel.

512MB ram I installed recently. I can't be sure just yet.

Anyone else had any problems with the newer kernel pacakge?
Side note, I had originally planned to run Ubuntu on the machine but
couldn't get it to boot off a Raid 1 /boot and / on LVM, FC3 handled
installing on this setup without an issue.
