First off, it's not a system crash if it's just kde & X Window
crashing.  If the system's not rebooting and remounting filesystems,
it's just one or two large apps (X, kdm, kde, ...) that are dying.

Most system logs are in /var/log.  In your $HOME directory, you may
also find ~/.xsession-errors

It might be helpful if you told us what your box is.  How much RAM,
disk, & etc.  A friend of mine was suffering mysterious crashes and
lockups until we gave up on the internal Winmodem.  Now, it's fine.
Lots of things can cause hiccups like this.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
