Fedora Core4 64bit won't install, XP Pro 64 bit edition does.

I have built many dual-boot systems before (many=ten or more since red hat v6.0). Get a kernel panic before I can select any of the manual install options. Was able to install 32 bit Ubuntu on the Linux partition, so guess the partition isn't totally unworkable. What's it like in the 64 bit Linux world?
(When it works). Again, I had no problem installing xp pro 64 bit edition.

Could be a hardware issue. Ubuntu has a live 64 bit version. Might give that a try.

FYI Found I could reu Ubuntu 64 bit live cd, and could also install 64 bit Ubuntu to my hard drive. Wonder why Fedora core 4 crashed. (Wasn't able to verify the disks I downloaded and burned were correct, either, so who knows?? Maybe they were bad to start with.
