The machine check looks like bad modules. You should try a newer kernel
with BootX anyway. I suggest you use kernels retreived from
linuxppc.cs.nmt.edu by ftp. This site is not specific to any distribution
and kernels here are snapshots of the vger source tree (main source tree
for linux-ppc) with all the latest fixes.
