[CentOS] handling kernel panics

I have a problem with a couple of my centos servers hitting a kernel
panic about once a week or so.

I find them sitting at a panic screen like this:

Two questions:

1) How do I make it reboot after a panic instead of sitting in a hung state?


2) How do I turn on logging so that I can see the entire kernel panic
message?  I tried changing syslog.conf so that kern.* goes to
/var/log/messages instead of just kern.debug, but all that did was
make booting a little more verbose in the log.
