Recently my FreeBSD 4.2 machine started crashing intermittently leaving the following on screen

kernel free scb list: (lengthy list of numbers here)

panic: for safety

syncing disks...

I can't seem to find anything in the logs which indicate what is causing this. I haven't added any new software or hardware for some time now. All the Dell diagnostics pass on the server. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
