Have Dell PowerEdge 2850, with Windows 2003 Server, Standard Edition with Service Pack 1 Installed.  This server is used basically as a File server. Very Frequently the Server restarts by itself.  
Last time this happened,  captured the Even log entry which is as follows.

Event Type:      Information
Event Source:      Save Dump
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1001
Date:            28/11/2007
Time:            18:12:36
User:            N/A
Computer:      FILESVR
Description:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x0000004e (0x0000009a, 0x0000812c, 0x00000006, 0x00000002). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP.

Executed Dumpchk.exe to do Analysis for the same and now confused what to look for in the output of analysis.  
Pl. guide how to locate the error.

My first thought would be a suspect driver - especially graphics
make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest version of the driver from the manufacturers web site

Running dumpcheck on the dump will not help us determine the cause of the issue. All that it does is verifies the integrity of the dump and that a memory dump file has been created correctly

As per Microsoft:
========
This error is typically caused by a driver passing a bad memory descriptor list. For example, the driver might have called MmUnlockPages twice with the same list.
If a kernel debugger is available, examine the stack trace.
=========

In our scenaro, the first parameter of the bugcheck is 0x0000009a which means:
A driver attempted to free a page that is still locked for IO.

Follow the guide in the link that I pointed out earlier to download and configure windbg and that will help you find out the culprit driver.
