    To all the experts out there, I recently purchased a single quad 08 Mac Pro with 2Gigs og RAM. I've been regularly experiencing 1 or 2 kernel panics a day on this machine. I checked disk permissions, ran the hardware tests including memtest and everything checks out fine. One thing that I noticed is a constant is that the machine has always experienced the panic while Firefox was in use. Please see below for the panic log. Can anybody help me decipher this?

    Most frequent kernel panics are hardware related. Since your Mac is new, I would have Apple look into it.

    1 or 2 /day??? That's crazy, esp for a new machine!!! Since converting to a MAC over a year ago (starting with MBP) I have yet to experience a kernel panic. NOT ONCE! (knock wood)

    Have you tried doing a "clean" install?

    Please, do not clean install; this is not only unlikely to help, it could make the situation worse. This Mac is under warranty, take it in for service.
