Kernal Panic and other military adventures

It is amazing how difficult it is to figure somethings out that you should really know. Kernal Panics. No problem. Had them with linux years ago when I had a faulty machine. But Yuka's lovely and talented flatpanel iMac gets a strange screen once a week or so with a research message and FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF at the bottom of the message. It reboots fine and works for a week. But today, since I should be doing other important things, I called apple. They told me it was Kernal Panic and his entourage. Gotta swap out her 256 meg dimm and put it in my puter, and put mine in hers. To see if my puter starts to panic. You'd wish that when the machine does something strange that they'd bother to tell you. Like the put the restart message in 4 languages. Wouldn't have been too much harder to say what had upset it so. Right?"
