Need help!

FreeBSD v2.2.5 installed and was working great until I got this error

Fatal trap12: page fault while in kernel mode
Fault virtual address	= 0xf33e7000
Fault code		= supervisor write, page not present
Instruction pointer	= 0x8:0xf010ea7
Stack pointer		= 0x10:0xefbffde8
Frame pointer		= 0x10:0xefbffdfc
Code segment		= base 0x0, limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b
			= DPL 0, pres1, def32 1, gran 1
processor eflags	= interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL=0
current process		= 234 (sh)
interrupt mask		= net tty bio
panic: page fault
syncing disks... 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 ...

Then the system will try to reboot.  I tried 'fsck' with both the -p and -f
It said it fixed a few errors, but then after a while, I get the error

The system is not usuable at this moment.  After being rebooted, it comes to
the login prompt fine.  Then, after say 5-15 minutes, the error will show up
the screen, and it will try to reboot.  Most of the time it does, but
sometimes, the
machine must be turned off.

Any suggestions?  I don't want to reformat because I have a bit of info on
the drive.
