What were the most recent changes to your system before this
problem occurred?

Do you have another operating system on the machine?  How does
it function?  

Have you contacted the hardware vendor about the problem?

I would try reinstalling INIT. This should fix the problem as it sounds like it may be corrupt. As with any seg fault removing and reinstalling usually can fix the problem.....
