What you are seeing on the screen is a Kernel Panic. KP's can be caused by defective hardware like say RAM but also happen when there are problems with OSX. Do you have the DVD's to reinstall? If so that is the first thing I would try. Are you plugging in anything when booting like some USB device?

Very cool on you being in Stockton. I make it up there from time to time.

Put in the OSX DVD and hold down the C key right after the startup sound and keep it down till it starts booting from the 10.5 DVD. That should boot.

Replace the RAM. If that doesn't work, then it's likely that some component on the motherboard is dead and the computer would be useless at that point.

Try this URL. Same driver message in the Kernel Panic. Worth a read anyway.

You say when you hold down C after the startup sound with the OSX disc in the drive it spits it out. What OSX CD/DVD is this? Black? Gray? What does it look like and say on it?
