    Could be incompatible ram. The only way to test this is pull all the ram...and only install ram you are 100% sure is compatible.

    Just a could be something else as well. But kernel panics many times are hardware related...and the ram is a good place to start troubleshooting...since on an iMac G4 there really isn't much else you can replace or troubleshoot other than the hard drive (which usually doesn't cause kernel panics).

    I agree it could be the ram, but I would actually start with a complete erase of the HD and a nice clean install of the OS.
    Then if you get the same issue I would start looking at RAM etc.
    You don't say what version OS btw, which would be helpful later down the line if there are still issues.
