Linux 2.0.29 stalls, even at the console

Hi Folks, and sorry if this has already been thrashed:

For the second time, approx. 5 days of uptime, I've had to reboot a
FireWall. The whole box goes into some kind of wait state every 6-10
seconds for about 2 seconds. This is apparent even typing at the console
or in an xterm. I posted this already to linux-net but I imagine it's
more of a kernel issue.

I did not get any messages in the logs to indicate a problem :(. If there
should be more investigation by me, just ask, for as soon as I conquer
this flu I should be ready for action :).

Linux2.0.29 586/100 SCSI 2 SMC cards / Masquerading quite heavily / Virt.
