PIX 501 Crashes

Hi there, im using 3 Pix 501 for a VPN over PPPOE. The first Pix is acting as the VPN Server with an static external IP Adress. The other both establish the IPSec Tunnels to it.

The "server" PIX is working on a 2Mbit SDSL PPPOE Connection.

The Pix Crashes an reboots after some Days without sending some warnigs or errors to the logs (2times now) Can someone help me to analyse the Crashinfo dump?
