This sounds like a new kernel with old modules, or vice versa.
The easiest way to deal with this and identify the culprit is to
boot single user mode. If it fails:
o Get to the boot countdown prompt
o Hit a key to interrupt
o List everything loaded
o Unload everything
o Load only the kernel
o Boot with -s
If it still doesn't work, it's your kernel or RAM.
If it works, then it is one of your modules.
If it didn't fail booting to single user mode, but only fails to
go to multiuser, then:
o Manually run through the startup scripts
o Note where it panics
o Take that out: it's broken.
o You're done
