Check if the cd is correct. Does it boot correctly on another cdrom drive? Have you calculated the MD5 of the image before buring it to see if it was downloaded correctly?

So it's under vmware? It make it more complicated... When you move the disk, do you insert it as the same device (example: primary slave disk in both machines) or as different ones?

Psycho(Clan):
We must have the answers to these questions to help you. Also - punctuation would be nice as it is difficult to discern what you're trying to say.
Just to reiterate and paraphrase what Mara said:
1) Have you got Linux running under VMWare?
2) You indicated that you moved the disk. When you moved it, in the new box is it set as primary mster/slave as it was in the old one?
3) Is the hardware in teh two machines identical?

Dunno about you but i got a kernel panic when I tried to use a SATA drive but not have scsi support compiled in.
Kernel panic is a fatal kernel error that can not be overridden, because it's vital for the kernel to pass this step if it want's to continue to run.

What is the exact message you receive when it says "Kernel Panic"?

Dude, calm down.

Yes, maybe that would be a good idea. But don't install on another computer, install on the server itself.

Plus I would never choose a FC kernel for a server environment. It's got all those nasty GUI tools that screw up everything when run, and it's got X turned on by default. I'd go with slackware or gentoo (or even freeBSD) if I were you.

Since you're at a reinstall, try gentoo. A stage3 tarball doesn't take long to install.
