Exclamation Kernel (and me) panic. Attempted to kill init!

I'm am very worried here. I am using red hat 9, and my laptop was
acting sluggish this afternoon, so I rebooted to speed it up. Halfway through boot I get this:

init: eroor while loading shared libraries: cannot handle TLS data
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!

Then boot stops and I am left with those words and the leds for my caps lock and num lock are blinking. I didnt make any major systemwide changes. I did install a bunch of packages recenty (some forced) so that I could get Anjuita (the programming app) to work. I was going to install the last few packages after I rebooted. Could this have something to do with it? What can I do?
I have tried the boot recovery disk, and it dosnet work. I can get to a shell through my install CD, but all of my files are missing, and there is only the core OS components visible.

Help me please

Sounds like you killed libc, which pretty much everything depends on...

Ooookay. Is there any way I can 'un-kill' it? I'm trying to be optimistic here.
