The hardware, and the kernel, is what's in common between all the
various problems you're having. The kernel itself is pretty rock
solid, for many people on this hardware. I think the first thing to
look at is RAM. Do you have more than one memory chip? If so, take one
out to see if it makes a difference. It sounds like the bad blocks
test is an ideal one to try.

MacOS is generally more tolerant of memory problems.
