 Kernel Bug Assertion Failure

i have a RH7.3 Server with Kernel 2.4.18-3smp working well for about 6
months now.
today i got an error saying:

I had to reboot the machine to get it to work again.
Can anyone tell me why that is happening.
Do i have to update the kernel (and why) or can i stay with my
I don't want to get this error more often.

Regards Wolf
