open /Developer/Applications/Utilities/CrashReporterPrefs.app

will allow you to at least change your Crash Reporter preferences to  
show you when applications crash ("Developer").

Enabling coredumps is a little more tricky under Mac OS X.  I believe  
under tiger, you have to do the following:

echo "limit core unlimited" >> /etc/launchd.conf

but there may be more steps.
