Someone living inside my computer?



I hear a 3 beeps every 10 minutes on Redhat 6.2. I've checked /etc/crontab,
linuxconf [superuser scheduled tasks or whatever] and nothing is there...
/var/log/cron shows the following:

root (05/01-18:01:00-22214) CMD (run-parts /etc/cron.hourly)
root (05/01-18:10:00-22234) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)
root (05/01-18:20:00-22238) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)
root (05/01-18:30:00-22244) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)
root (05/01-18:40:00-22247) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)
root (05/01-18:50:00-22249) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)
root (05/01-19:00:00-22252) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)
root (05/01-19:01:00-22254) CMD (run-parts /etc/cron.hourly)
root (05/01-19:10:00-22258) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)
root (05/01-19:20:00-22267) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)
root (05/01-19:30:00-22270) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)

what is rmmod?  Rmmod unloads loadable modules from the running kernel.

[root localhost log]# /sbin/lsmod

I have an uptime of 18 days...should I just reboot and the problem will go away?
And whoever is living inside my computer won't cry out for help anymore?
