software watchdog


My home-debian-box starts to behave rather odd lately, now and then it 
will freeze completely.

The only thing working is ICMP, I can´t even get a TCP connection open, 
the screen is frozen, neither mouse nor keyboard will generate any 

I´ve already tried changing all I have on spare (read RAM and graphics 

Since there´s not even a single syslog-entry, I don´t really know where 
to start debugging. Would it make sense if I installed the "software 
watchdog" into the kernel in this case, so that the machine would 
(eventually) reboot when it hangs? This would be great because I´ll be 
on a trip next week and my girl-friend needs the debian-box as gateway/
mailserver in the meantime...
