Had this rebooting problem before for a while and it drove me NUTZ! Installed RedHat and FreeBSD and both rebooted periodically. Don't know if my solution will help or not, but what was causing my reboots was the system BIOS. The options for Power Management in the system BIOS should have some settings for the monitor as well as the hard drive. I was finding that the spinning down of the hard drive caused the machine to reboot. No traces in any error logs or anything...
Hope that helps somebody...somewhere... :)
