thanks a lot for your answers.
I got two answers. One was to put a number of seconds into
/proc/sys/kernel/panic and the other one was to use watchdog with a
software deamon.

Any idea which one is more reliable? Why are there two seperate
mechanisms? Do they try to shutdown or reboot coldly?

Thanks again for your replies.
