Maybe it has nothing to do with your problem, but there is a timing 
issue with some intel xeon and p4 processors. Look at this HP advisory:

even if it says that no field issues have been identified, I've 
experienced real random lock ups before updating the bios.
Look if is there a bios update available from dell.
