Multiple, repeating kernel panics

My iMac G4 has been throwing a fit over the past couple of days. Yesterday, programs crashed for seemingly no reason, and I only use Safari with iTunes and iChat running the background on this particular Mac. I've been getting many kernel panics now since before then. All of the issues started just a couple of days ago.
Any simple remedies I should try? I haven't dealt with this in awhile. I'm going to run Disk Utility and whatnot once I can turn it on without crashing, but I feel like there are some preference files I should look at somewhere that I just can't put my finger on... Thoughts?
I'd prefer not to wipe it, but then again, if I have to, I would end up installing Tiger back onto it, since Leopard certainly stresses the hardware for some tasks. Surprisingly, it works quite well under Leopard, except for this instance. Ah decisions, decisions. Recommendations?
