If you are running Panther OS rather than Tiger, you do not have an iMac Intel, but a first generation iMac G5, and your problem and the solution is explained here:
I had the exact same problem...
push the power button in and hold it to turn off the iMac.
push it again to turn it back on
hear the chime
push and hold the Command-Option-P-R key combination during startup untill you hear the chime again
this fixed my problem...for the most part, only went blurry-fuzzy once more...
iMac kernel: Graphics chip error! Restarted.
nope...problem still here, option-command-P-R didn't fix it. Got a case number from Apple Support, gonna take the iMac in to be fixed under the http://www.apple.com/support/imac/repairextensionprogram/ .
