Is this X crashing or the whole system crashing?

Do you see anything relevant in /var/log/XFree86.0.log?

You could try installing planetccrma-core-redhat (in addition to
planetccrma-core) and trying the capabilities enabled RedHat kernel from
Planet CCRMA. If the crashes go away then the problem is in 2.4.21...
Hopefully fixed in the soon to be released 2.4.22. There have also been
a couple of reports of problems with the nForce2 chipset.
