it sounds like something wasn't copied correctly during installation... is this a fresh install, or are you trying to upgrade the kernel?

i've been doing a search on that panic - everything i've found points to a hardware problem, but i haven't been able to narrow it down to what it could be specifically. could you give a list of the hardware you're trying to install the linux on?

ok... found some more info. that error occurs during the machine check handling for the processor - an error there usually means a bad or overclocked cpu.
