iBook G4 w/ Leopard Kernel Panics
I have an iBook G4 running stock 512MB memory. Last week I updated to 10.4.11 and immediately after it restarted, I kept getting recurring kernel panics. No rhyme or reason, it would occur randomly. It even occurred a couple of times at the login screen.
So, thinking I had a problem, and since I was planning on installing Leopard anyway, I popped in the install disk and did a disk utility check. Found some errors on the drive, and I told it to repair. I then proceeded to install Leopard by zeroing out the drive and installing fresh.
After installation completed, and running Leopard for not even 10 minutes I was greeted with a kernel panic. Now I get them periodically. Sometimes I'll get 4 or 5 in the span of half an hour. Other times I can use it for hours without issue. Disk utility says everything is kosher, so I'm not sure what to do next. I thought it was a software problem, but doesn't seem to be.
Below is my panic log. I would appreciate any help or guidance.

Hopefully it's RAM because that's the easiest and cheapest thing to replace...
Do you have the Apple Hardware Test which came with your iBook? If so, boot to that and run the hardware tests - might reveal something. You might also try booting into safe mode and running Rember, which is a good memory test.
