Freezing can be caused by faulty RAM, or boot sectors of the hard drive. Both can only be evaluated with Disk Utility from the Install disk.

Seeing you have the original Leopard disk, boot from that and run Disk Utility > First Aid > Verify Disk, and then repair if necessary.

Don't rely too much on permissions repair from the installed Disk Utility. A better job is done by OnyX Titanium's Software • Download.

If you should get the iMac booting 'normally', then there is a little utility that will check the status of installed RAM, Memtest Memtest OS X.
