Are you sure you're seeing a kernel panic? A KP is a total, irrecoverable system crash from which you have to restart. It looks like this in 10.3:
You shouldn't be getting an error like this if your software is up to date. I can access ESPN fine from my Mac in Safari. I would suggest making sure your Internet plug-ins (Flash, QuickTime) are up to date (or just reinstall them) and then run through the maintenance tips in the FAQ thread at the top of the Genius Bar here.
As for the original poster, Macaddict16, I would suggest removing some RAM and then the other bit of RAM and see if stability improves. RAM can
go bad, although it is rare.
A kernel panic is usually either a hardware issue or driver conflict or some other very low-level problem. I doubt reinstalling Panther will solve the problem (try the FAQ suggestions first), but it might... stranger things have happened.
