Every time I leave my G5 crunching away on BOINC, I come back to find it frozen with a kernel panic with the fans on full blast. I have the log information, can anyone look at it and give me a reason?

I reccommend to verify your hardware with the diag tools from the apple CD, rembler (memory test) and prime95 (stress test).
How ofter did the system crash ?
