[PLUG] kernel panic from unknown cause

My SME server (based on CentOS 4.5) had a kernel panic at 4:06 this morning.
How do I determine, if possible, what caused the panic?
Based on the first line of the relevant log entries ( SEE: ) it looks like some kind of memory problem.

Log entries prior to this were several hours earlier and appeared unrelated
(DHCP leases)

I'll run memtest this evening when I take the server down.
The system has 384 MB of RAM and a 433 MHz Celeron (yeah, due for replacement
REAL SOON NOW.)  Main disks are 2x 160 GB in a RAID Mirror - operating normally.

Google leads me to the same question in multiple places but no real answers.
