[CentOS] how to debug random server reboots

Hi all,

One of our CentOS 5.3 randomly reboots, at different times of the day,
and I can't see why it's doing it.

I have looked through the logs, but don't see any thing in there that
shows me why it has rebooted. How can I debug this?

Here's a snipped from the log, around the time of the reboot:
