    Ok, so I decided after a lot of issues with Lion that would would downgrade back to Snow Leopard. Midway through the process my MBA turns off and this screen pops up after restart that says I need to restart my computer and has all this computer jargon at the top:

    devfs_kernel_mount :failed to find directory /dev 2panic cpu 0

    and so forth. What do I do at this point???

    Are you using the restore disc that came with the computer, or a retail Snow Leopard disc? If you try to install a version earlier than the one that shipped with the MBA, that could be the reason for the kernel panic.

    Ok I may have jumped the gun, I did a startup while holding down the C key with the flash drive my MBA came with. I had to repartition the hard drive. Snow Leopard is installing now.
