FC2 Kernel Panic fatal exception in interrupt


I've been running Fedora Core 1 without difficulty. On doing a fresh install (not an upgrade) of Fedora Core 2 final version, the install completes normally, but Linux will not boot.

The boot process starts normally and enters interactive startup, mounts root as read-write, and then the system freezes for about two minutes, before producing the following error:

<0>Kernel Panic: Fatal exception in interrupt
In interrupt handler - not syncing

The system:

Asus P4PE motherboard with P4 2.4-Ghz and 512 MB RAM, nVidia FX-5600 256MB AGP graphics.

I have also posted this in Bugzilla but wanted to post here as well in case anyone has further info or is encountering the same problem.

Thanks.

Supplemental info; here is the panic screen. Also, I am able to boot from the rescue CD, and I tried turning kudzu off, which made no difference.

-------screen starts here---------
