centos wont install, kernal panic no sync - fatal exception in interrupt

I just put together a bunch of old parts and to my amazement it loaded into win98 (previous install on hd) and i dropped into bios to make bootup to CD, and somewhere between loading scsi drivers and i think the window where centos trys to test your media, it crashed, and crashed again. im useing centos I386 in the cd install it says I586, but i used those cd's recently on another machine which is now setup as a portable CS 1.6 server. sooo im not really sure what is going on.
to be really honest im not exactly sure what it all is. i believe its a MSI motherboard, and im useing a rage 128 ultra agp card, random lan card, 10gb hd, and cd-rom. not even sure how much ram it has lol. like i said earlier i just kinda threw it all together for SSH server. one kool thing about it, i believe the scsi and possibly the IDE are setup for RAID, but not possitive....

the error im getting is: kernal panic - not syncing: fatal exception in interrupt

Does it post any errors. If so post them. Also have you the other optins to install. They are listed at startup. you type something like ' linux rescue ' to use the the CD as a Rescue CD. I forget any of the others that offer install for no graphics. Been a long while since installing from scratch. One option is like ' linux noprobe ' or ' linux nosub ' or ' linux noprobe nousb ' and so on many many choices that can be done.
