That's called a kernel panic...and most times it's hardware related. Furthermore...MANY times it's related to bad ram or incompatible ram. My suggestion would be to pull all the ram...and only install 1 stick of ram at a time to see if you get stability.
Your Mac-mini has 2 ram slots (not sure if both are filled). If both are filled...remove 1, and restart. See if you have stability. If so, great. If not try the other stick by itself. If all your ram appears bad...then you could try ordering a new stick of ram from OWC or Crucial:
Performance Upgrades; FireWire USB SATA Storage; Memory, more at OWC
RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, SSD at Crucial.com
If your Mac-mini only has 1 stick of ram in it...then it is either bad (dead)...or not Mac compatible.
...or it could be a different hardware problem. But this is unlikely...since your Mac-mini sounds like it boots properly.
