Hi all, im having a bit of problems installing Linux CentOS on my pc. Basically the system suddenly stops booting from the CD after few secs. The last line says " Kernel panic - not syncing: drivers/ide/pci/atiixp.c:225: spin_lock(drivers/ide/ide.c:c037dd68) already locked by drivers/ide-iops.c/1234" I havent got a clue on what to do. any help will be appreciated. thanks in advance

Looks like a hardware confusion. Not sure what to do here.
Post detail info of system.

One thing you can try on the boot line at install time is use this command.
