Hi I'm new to this list but a big gnome fan willing to aid anyway I can.
I did have similar problems initially while running fedora core 3 on a
new system. If I noticed the system had frozen soon after it froze I was
able to ctrl+F1 to the prompt and kill the X session. If I lapsed all
was lost. It was then I decided to use the nvidia drivers for the card
which is a 5200. I was then immediately able to have my system running
weeks at a time and have since seen no lockups. Note FC3 also used 2.8.
As this was a new system FC2 with gnome 2.6 was never tested.

I hope this helps somewhat.
