Conventional wisdom says this happens when you experience a kernel panic, which you would be experiencing likely due to (a) some corrupt software you have recently installed or (b) bad hardware. To test (a), uninstall anything you have added since before you started experiencing this. In the extreme case, re-install Mac OS X. For (b), time to take it to the Apple Store!

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3

It turns out that some software a friend let me borrow is pirated. Is this the problem?

Technically any software that's "borrowed" is pirated by definition. And yes, that may be the problem. Remove it and see if that helps.

Okay. I may just reinstall OS X anyway.

EDIT: Schweb & mac57, Did just what you said. Worked like a charm
