It is a kernal panic

I have never had one but you don't want them. It rarely happens but if it happens multiple times try to remember what you are doing and see if there is a common theme to them happening. If there is no pattern to them happening there could be a problem with your logic board

Try repair permissions. After every software update, and about every 2 weeks: close all apps and log totally off. Log on, go in Finder, Applications. Utilities, Disk Utility. After the message -getting disk information- select volume (below the hard drive name -upper left corner). Just highlight it. Now look to the lower two things are there near the middle, verify permissions, repair permissions. Click repair permissions If it happens again, Restart in single user terminal (restart and hold Apple S) and there type /sbin/fsck -fy and repeat until the ***file system changed** message stops

Dont worry, it's nothing evil. fsck = file system check.
Open a terminal and type man fsck for more info.

Ii sounds like your OS is corrupted to me also.

Ok, just did that command in terminal while starting up with apple+s. It says the volume iMac G5 is OK. (My HDD name is iMac g5). I DIDNT get anything that said

****file system changed****

Also, does a kernal panic HAVE to be a logic board if its not a corrupt OS?? Or can they happen randomly like windows crashes (but ALOT less frequent). I dont know if this helps, but i renamed my home folder to my name (that isnt my username in OS X) and it stored all my things in ym home folder, in another spot next time i logged in. Could that have coruppt the OS???

EDIT - Would a re-install of OS X fix the corrupt??

ok, you should never rename your home folder, change it back to its EXACT originall name.
an erase and install is the only fix for a corrupt os.

Glad to hear. Just to be safe you may wanna run repair permissions again, it never can hurt KP's are not necessarily a logic board issue if hardware is the cause, it can be RAM too
