I have an HP DL385 running Server 2003 Enterprise R2, and it was hung up today when I came in.  The first time it hung and I rebooted I had to enter safe mode and run chkdsk 3 times on all the volumes, and disable all my app services to get it to boot. I can bring it back for 1-2 minutes if I end explorer.exe, then restart it from task manager, but it never actually kills the process. I am now able to restart it and it will come right up, but the explorer is still crashing.
