Absolutely no messages in your log files?  There really should have
been some, unless the filesystem that went read-only when the
filesystem error occured was where your logs are being kept?

Two things I can think of trying:  First of all, make sure you have the
lasted errata kernel from Red Hat installed.  Secondly, consider doing
network-based syslogging (i.e., configure syslog.conf to send its logs
over the network to a logging server).  I generally consider that to
be a really good idea for production servers.
