Server Suddenly Started Hunging up

At first thought it sounds like your hard drive might be failing (I
could be dead wrong, just a guess based on experience). The sudden
hanging with commands, the DHCP-not-serving issue and no-exporting-home
things seem to be a commonality with something very basic in the system.
IIWY I'd run an FSCK on your drive. I have never run into issues with
gnome-watchdog (have it running at 9 sites), but I'm also not running
64-bit version. A memtest on your RAM wouldn't hurt, either.
Have you tried rebooting the server? I'd examine the logs a bit closer -
there's got to be a clue in there somewhere.
