The first thing to check is your hardware. I would do a memory check first.
Another possibility is that errors occurred during installation, and you may
have some corruption. I've had both of these problems. WRT: corruption. I
had errors during instalation while reading the DVD. My solution was to
copy the DVD to the hard disk, and perform a HD instalation. I think, at
the time, I had to repeat the instalation 2 or 3 times. I've also had some
very weird problems with my power supply. My disks would simply go offline,
and I couldn't reboot in some cases until I reseated the cables.
Eventually, I replaced the power supply and the system has worked
