"top" showed several copies of logrotate running very busily.  A copy 
of gzip was also running (to gzip logs, I assume).  My guess is something
went wrong and they got into a race condition or something.

The machine didn't reboot on its own.  *I* rebooted the system.

He only has a user access, only because we used to use the dialup through
the system (he had an account so he can type "/sbin/ifup ppp0").  He
doesn't log in anymore now that we have a 24/7 access, and "last" shows he
hasn't logged on in a while.

Cool.  So no problems.

Installation probably takes not long if I knew exactly what packages to
check/uncheck but since I don't I'd need to go through the whole
list.  Also I'd need to add ssh server, portsentry, setup tcp wrapper,
