Searching on your error message brings up a few others that have gotten the same error.
It seems to be a problem that occurred during the install process.

Well, it looks like the 3rd try was the charm. I loaded from the CD again and hit 'install'. This time it worked and everything seems to have loaded properly. There are now no errors during boot. I guess I wasn't holding my jaw correctly during the 1st install... Thanks!

yea i saw that it was during the install, but the problem is, mine ran fine for weeks before this error came about and it looks like theirs was during the install process

So i reseated my RAM and tried each individually and it turns out I had a bad stick of RAM...
hopefully this helps someone in the future
