RedHat9 reboot after loading initrd.img

I have computer with specs:
Compaq Deskpro 4000 5200mmx,
32MB RAM with 1.2 Gb Harddisk.
it can not boot from CDRom.
i planned to use it as a router.

for better and faster installation, I used my P4 2.8G (Intel board), with 768MB RAM, to install RedHat 9 Fedora core 2, 2.6.5-1.358.

after succesful installation, (everything fine, after testing), i move my hard disk to my Deskpro, and boot it.

after entering GRUB loader, loading vmlinuz then initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img, computer rebooted by it self, and after load initrd then reboot again and again.

is it because of my RAM (less) or caused by the motherboard.
i have 2 partition 900MB as / and 256MB as swap.

thank u,

Mas Giong
