Linux Kernel Problem -- Kernel panic: CPU context corrupt


I have a problem with a Linux install.

I am trying to install Red Hat Fedora on my PC (3Ghz processo with 1Gb of RAM).

I perform the online FTP install and it completes properly...but when I reboot the PC it halts during the boot process to say :

Kernel panic: CPU context corrupt
In idle task - not syncing

I have tried the install from a few locations and I am sure that it is not a problem with the files on the mirror...unless all mirrors are corrupt!

I have also tried to instatall RedHat 9 using this method...same answer.

I have run the diagnostics from the motherboard, RAM and processor provider...all tests passed!

Any hints?
