I agree with JoeHill.
When I was having constant crashes it was because my CPU was
under-voltaged.  Yet Windows XP kept running perfectly (if slower).  I 
think Linux uses the
hardware more fully, and is more effected by bad hardware. 

If you ever get a crash, try checking the /var/log/messages log for any 
kernel panics.
