I finally got my kernel panic problem fixed Found a slightly newer fasterG4 that would take 10.5 My biggest problem was I lost a TON of files. Finally got back to the point where I rebuilt MOST of the important stuff. Now I'm getting the rest of it put back together as best I can. Thanks.

DiskWarrior should let you Scavenge the files from the bad hard drive. Install the HD in the new machine, watch the jumpers, and let DW do it's thing. It will let you Preview the changes by mounting a Preview disk on the desktop and you can copy the files over to the good HD from there. Just copy DW to the new machine and run it from there, no need to boot from the DVD.
I had one this weekend that Disk Utility couldn't fix, keys out of order like you had. Trying to boot from the HD caused a kernel panic. I booted from the DW DVD, it fixed the keys, and the machine lives again.
Usually the kernel panic means a hardware failure, but in this case it was just file corruption on the HD, only have seen that one other time, I thought the machine was hosed but DW saved the day.
