That doesn't look good.  It points to an addressing problem in memory or
perhaps a problem with the graphics chipset.  From what you describe,
this only happens when you're doing texture - and that's not a happy
thing when dealing with O2s.

Since you say it lived through replacing RAM and a reinstall of the OS,
it's most certainly a hardware problem - and since the graphics chipset
of an O2 is on the systemboard, the only recourse is to replace the

I could be wrong, but my gut doesn't steer me wrong too often.
