I have posted before, and looked extensively for the answer, but nothing has worked. Yes I have tried mem=noathlon, mem=nopentium, vmlinuz=noahtlon/pentium, alogn with everything else that came along. Perhaps the last bit of information on the screen will help solve this? This is RH7.1.

Kernel Panic: Attempted to kill init!
oh yes, that was fun. Here is my system specs, as oerhaps they will prove the source of my error:
AMD Athlon XP 1700+
Iwill XP333-R Motherboard (ALI Chipsets)
ATI Raedon 7000 Graphics Card
1 - 10 gig Maxtor HD ( the one I am putting linux on)
1 - 30 gig Quantum HD (my windhoze box)
those are the only things possible I can see which have a slight chance to cause a problem. do I have to many XP's for linux? heh. Ok, any ideas here guys? I've been att hise for weeks!
