That was a Kernal Panic. Unless it keeps happening its not much to worry about right now.

Try repairing your permissions

Yes, repairing permissions is done using Disk Utility as you described. As for what kernel panics are, here's an Apple article explaining them: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106227

I only ever got one, but that was when my iPod went south. I got the iPod replaced (APP is awesome) and haven't had one since.
