System crashes without any warning

I've some trouble with Linux pre-2.0.31-2 on our Dual-P5 system
(GA586DX board, 96 megs of RAM, 128 megs of swap, 1x SCSI disk, 2x
EIDE disk running as RAID0 using the md driver). When the system is
very busy (satlink feeding articles to INN, expire, and backup to DAT
are running) it suddenly freezes. The only way out is to reset the
system -- and wait 'til fsck is ready with our 12 gig news spool

There is no warning, ooops, or any other message on console, nor in
the syslog files indicating where I have to seek. Maybe it's a kernel
problem with swap or SMP?
