Going by the fact that most of the entries relate to the wireless card, I'd hazard a guess and say your iBook is having problems with it's wireless card.

G4 iBook I think you mean.

But could you be more specific about the crashes? I can't find any specifix info about them from that log, I'm afraid.
Is it during every startup, or when opening a specific app?
Does creating a new user and log into the new account stop the crashes?

Done the "standard" maintenance (fsck, permissions check)?

Its a iBook G4...MacBooks are Intel only, and Apple stopped using the G3/4/5 system with the PPC->Intel move.

Sorry Folks! Is my mistake. It is Ibook and not mac book. The computer can crash anytime with a Kernel panic message, asking me to reboot. Sometime, some funny words with black background appears with the first statement mentioning about stack corrupt. I read somewhere that a computer can crash if the temperature is too high. I have removed the external protection canvas (which i have bought) and the keyboard silicon protector. It seems well today. If you folks have a better analysis from my console log, please advise me. I will check my wireless card too, as one of you have suggested. Thank you so much.
