[SLUG] kernel oops help

Hi Folks,
I just had a whole bunch of kernel oopses on my laptop.
I'm running Debian 5.0; kernel is 2.6.26-2-686
I get a dialogue in gnome telling me my kernel has just failed and lines in
/var/log/messages like:
      kerneloops: Submitted 2 kernel oopses to www.kerneloops.org
Everything appears to be working though.
Just before the oops entries in /var/log/messages, I have
      ata1: hard resetting link
a line after this printing out all my linked in modules
      Modules linked in: ... alot ...
and then what looks like some debug info:
      Pid: 14285, comm: top Not tainted (2.6.26-2-686 #1)
      EIP: 0073:[<b7de108c>] EFLAGS: 00000216 CPU: 0
      [ ... several more lines of debug guff ...]

Is this an impending disk failure, power problem or have I been pwned? :(
