I'm also using Mathematica 3.0 for Win95, and I got the same thing.
Except on mine, the kernel didn't bomb until I attempted to force it
to terminate (hit alt-f4 on kernel window).  It was taking forever to
complete, so that's why I terminated it.

Here is the dump from Norton Crashguard:  
(You'll notice this isn't the first time the kernel has bombed in this


The program 'Mathematica Kernel' caused the error: Integer divide by
