    Everything seemed to be going well with my beautiful iMac 2.8ghz 24. But now, about once a day, it freezes and the screen will shift suddenly to a blue or grey screen of death.

    How do I go about working this problem?

    mDNS and Bonjour

    the messages you see are Bonjour related
    some googling suggests turning of Bonjour via the command:

    launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist

    The "-w" is to write the change so that Bonjour services stay down after a reboot, leav out this parameter and Bonjour will come back automatically on reboot

    the other posting also say Bonjour is needed and you will see some apps beachball (like printing) - so you probably don't want to leave it down forever

    finally - not clear at all that these messages are related to the crashing

    there are various logs available in /var/log and /Library/Logs/CrashReporter that can be accessed via the console - these can tell you what was happening before the crash

    I have a 2.8Ghz 24" iMac as well. It started doing the same thing.
    Turns out it was the HDD failing.
    If I was you I would make sure you have a backup of everything.

    Run the Apple Hardware Test.
    See details here http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1509
    Make sure you do the extended testing. It will take about an hour, but it will tell you if the HDD is failing.
