I am running Panther (yeah I know...old school!) on a Dual G5 PowerPC.
Upon booting up I get a black window telling me to reboot through the power button in several languages.

And the fans are going berserk in the machine ... sounding like rush hour at LAX!

what gives?

I have run Tech Tool Pro without much joy. Everything is healthy...

That would be a kernel panic... and probably not a good one

You'll have to double check this but if I remember correctly kernel panics on startup usually mean bad ram...

Run hardware test... and see...

Also check out this link this may help...

Also look on google for kernel panics...
