A pretty old/buggy kernel (see rhn errata), guess you didn't
applied a single patch, well done.;( This box might fall down in
just another second, there's no guarantee.

RH 7.3 is already outdated, I'll apply all patches available and
see if the problem persists, if yes, your hardware (IDE
controller?) is perhaps the problem. You should make a
plan for upgrading the system anyway.

Good luck
