Unhappy Freezing!

I just installed Mandrake 9.1 and it is constantly freezing. There does not seem to be a common thing i do to make it freeze, seem completely random. Below is my dmesg....hope someone can help!

Linux version 2.4.21-0.13mdk (gcc version 3.2.2 (Mandrake Linux 9.1 3.2.2-3mdk)) #1 Fri Mar 14 15:08:06 EST 2003
