Question System crash on first backup attempt

Hello. I just downloaded SuperDuper! yesterday after reading all of the rave reviews. Seems like a great match for the Maxtor One Touch II drive I just bought for backups. But.... about an hour into the backup process I keep getting an ugly system crash - gray screen and a message telling me that I need to restart the computer. I've seen this a few times in the past but nothing as consistent as this. I've tried to complete the backup three of four times now and the crash always happens about an hour in with the SuperDuper progress bar about 95% of the way across. I've included below the log file from tonight's attempt. I have an iMac G5 20", 1.5GB, 160GB internal drive with only 50GB used. I'm attempting to copy it to an 80GB partition on the Maxtor.

Thanks. Hope you can help!
