    Sounds like you experienced a kernel panic and have since experienced system slowness, am I right? Prior to that kernel panic, had you installed any new software, installed new RAM in the system, or attached any other sort of hardware? How long have you had the machine? Had you had any troubles with system responsiveness or crashing before?

    You need to use the Disk Utility on the OS X DVD and Repair Permissions and Repair the Disc, it sounds like something is corrupted.
