I am thinking that this is some sort of hardware problem.  When I started working on this computer it was rebooting on its own.  I was able to boot to safe mode with no problem.  I thought maybe a driver or software problem.  After screwing around w/ it for half a day I deceided to rebuild.  I poped in the 2k cd, deleted the partition, reformatted the hd, and loaded windows.  But when the computer rebooted it looked good at first...then I get the BSD and the following message:

stop: 0000007f (0....)
unexpected_kernal_mode_trap
Begining dump of physical memory
complete

Could this be caused by a bad piece of hw.  Help?

Typically, bad RAM will cause an error like that when installing an OS fresh.  Try swapping the RAM.
