[CentOS] Kernel panic - where to go from here?

CentOS 5 has been running continuously since 9/21 on my "do everything" home
server (with the exception of a kernel update). It's a fairly old Athlon
machine that serves as a firewall and various servers (dovecot, samba, NFS,
dhcp, OpenVPN, etc).
I connected via OpenVPN about a week ago and discovered I get a kernel panic.
I've since found that this is very repeatable and happens only after being
connected via OpenVPN for about 4 hours or so.
I was able to manually copy the stuff on the console after the panic (see below).
I googled "unable to handle kernel paging request" and didn't really find
anything useful (to me).
I've tried both kernel version 2.6.18-8.1.14.el5 and 2.6.18-8.1.15.el5 as well
as OpenVPN versions 2.1_rc4-1 and 2.0.9 all with the same results.
Not sure where to go with this(?). Should I post this on a kernel mailing
list? Or somewhere else?
