Kernel panic in loading Mandrake 9.1


I'm loading Mandrake 9.1 on an old computer (still pretty fast with 128 Ram and a 400 intel processor)..
I get a messabe after RamDIsk 'Compressed Image found at BLOCK 0
Then KERNEL BUG at page_alloc.c:210
'0f 0b d2 00' etcetera (I mean dozens of similar code?)
Then the final line reads
KERNEL PANIC: ATTEMPTED TO KILL INI!
I also tried to load redhat and the same error message.. The disks are good as I'm running Mandrake on another pute'...
When I tried to load windows 98 It just FROZE on FILE ALLOCATION section in the scandisk pre-install.
I have a feeling it's a virus..(and if so how do I get rid of it?)
Any help would be appreciated..
Thanks so much..

Getting problems installing Mandrake AND installing Win98... sounds like you have some bad hardware somewhere...

Hey lordevereste...

Any chance it was a Gateway machine?? Seems many Gateways take special memory with a different latency. I priced the memory for mine from Gateway and it was $70 per 128 Meg...ouch..
