No X, no sshd, nothing, so I can't get in from another box to see what's going on.  I haven't seen anything in the syslog either.  I had a slightly older debian system on here a while back that I had to wipe that was rock solid, so it must be a config problem somewhere.  Any ideas?

Maybe try another kernel? Older, newer...

If you want some sane responses, tell us some more about your hardware,
kernel and X versions, filesystems, etc.

Good luck,
