Red hat 9 Kernel panic with radeon 9200

I recently installed a Radeon 9200 video card to my PC.
I installed an older Red hat 7.0 (kernel 2.2.16) I had at home...worked ok!
Nowadays I got internet working (after some months without) and decided to upgrade to Red hat 9...
So i downloaded the iso discs and did the upgrade...
Installation worked out fine, but after reboot and after boot loader(which is working also), the system hangs up with:

Code:Bad EIP value
<0>kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!
In interrupt handler-not syncing

as I have my PC opened (after installation of network cards aso.) I tried total reinstallation of Red hat 9 with my "antique" S3Trio64 Pci Card...->Red Hat 9 worked ok!
well, I donīt know where the problem is, agp?MB?kernel?
Have searched google for similar problems without success..
anyone to help me?

Hereīs the configuration:

duron 800
Fujitsu 17 GB hd
Radeon 9200

The partitions i have checked, and they should be fine...

Anyone to help me?
Thank you already!

Hard w/o log info. One way is, if you still have the log, you could try running the oops part tru ksymoops, or run klogd with the "-2" parameter to have it resolve the symbols, then check the symbol in the kernel's map.
Another way would be to make sure any PNP stuff is disabled in the BIOS, any settings on default cuz Linux figures stuff out all by itself, remove any HW and any "aggressive" SW settings you think could be obstacles and try booting with each piece/SW config separately.

Needless to say that sucks major.
