So, even if it doesn't look like that, I still try to work on this problem ;)
I tried to change the drivers from "nvidia" to "nv" - but there's at least one case I know, when a PC still crashed, so it doesn't seem to be this :(
Today, I found out something funny: On a PC where X crashed as described, there were a process called "gdm-binary" (duh, I know, I missed to write down all the parameters and options). I was just killing all the non-system-processes and looking if it would change something - and really, after killing the gdm-binary X restarted itself at once, so that I didn't have to execute init 3; init 5 any more.
So the big question is - what consequences can we take out of this? Does it mean that gdm is misconfigured, or could it be anything else?

dozen of mounted NFS shares - all the user accounts etc., from about 5

driver, too - and a kinda genius who I know has the same opinion. Are there
maybe any other drivers I could try out on a GeForce 7300, except of the
proprietary from the NVIDIA page?
Btw, thanks for not throwing with things at me :-)
in the xorg.conf file ( /etc/X11)
you can try changing the driver line from:
like when I get a new kernel installed, and X fails, I go to xorg.conf and
change this line:
the restart X with
# /etc/init.d/kdm restart
you could also try vesa instead of nv
