Thanks dudydoo,
I understand that kernel panic is protected mode operation to prevent system from fatal error.I think i need to rebuild my kernel...Please notify that i have followed the steps from my extracted kernel source folder...
make config
after configuration..
make bzImage (Note that i used linux-2.6.28.8.tar.bz2)
make modules
make modules-install
make install

Do i need to change any of this procedure to avoid kernel panic
Regards
S.Suresh kumar

The previous kernel modules should still be available under /lib/modules/`uname -r` for each kernel. AFAIK it doesn't remove them.
