A new feature of OS 10.2.x (Jaguar) is the ability to view the log Jaguar creates when an application
quits unexpectedly (kernel panics are logged as well). The log provides technical details about why the application crashed and the state of the system when it happened. To view the log(s), launch Apple System Profiler (in /Applications/Utilities) and click the tab on the far right. The crash logs are sorted by application and date.
You can also use Console to view logs, which are located in user/Library. Note that the Console application included with 10.3 (Panther) has new features and is the preferred method for viewing crash logs (and all other logs) in 10.3
