This sounds exactly like the software watchdog config option:

  A software monitoring watchdog. This will fail to reboot your system
  from some situations that the hardware watchdog will recover
  from. Equally it's a lot cheaper to install. 

This should work on ppcs.  If you need a HW solution, the watchdog PCI
cards should work (the ones w/ drivers that is), but you never know.
