More information would be helpful here. At what point do you see kernel panic?
You need to provide as much info as possible as crystal balls are useless in a situation like this.

Could be a problem with the CD. Did you download it from the net? If so, did you remember to check the MD5 sum. If the MD5 sum looks OK you might try burning again at a lower speed -- I've had problems in the past with ISOs burned at high speed.

You could also try giving the noapci and nousb options when the CD boots in case it is choking trying to detect some hardware.
