Unhappy Kernel Panic using FC4


I had just burned the image on the last cd when I inserted Disc number 1 and started the install process, I got a boot screen and wanted to start the installation in gfx mode so I typed nothing to do so.
Suddenly my dreams fell apart like a city built out of cards,
Suddenly the Kernel paniced and screamed:
[<c01002b8>] init+0x18/0xf0
[<c01012b1>] kernel_thread_helper+0x5/0x14
Code: c8 fc ff 8b 45 4c 3d 3c 4b 24 1d 74 90 e8 8e ca fc ff 8d 55 4c 50 52 68 6a 
01 00 00 68 88 c0 37 c0 37 c0 68 28 4b 37 c0 e8 c5 c8 fc ff <0f> 0b 1e 01 88 c0 37 c0
e9 7b fe ff ff 8b 54 24 3c 8b 44 24 08
<0> Kernel Panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
and a long list of error codes looking like this [<c0208c89>]

I double checked if I had the Iso Images right, and there they are FC4-86x-i386 for my beautiful Intel processor, but What got me thinking is there a different arcitechture for Intels Microprocessing technology ?

Or is there something different about installing it on a laptop I remember I had Ubuntu on my old one the installation went smootly, so I highly doubt there's something like that.

The processor in the notebook is,

Intel Pentium M 750 1,8ghz

With thanks in advance.

As far as I know, the standard x86 version should work on Intel Microprocessor CPUs.

Have you tried searching Google for notes on installing Linux/Fedora on your particular model of laptop?

It might be worth reading and trying some of the options you can pass to the kernel at boot. For example, 'noapic' 'noapci' 'failsafe'. Have you tried installing in text mode?

You might want to use the UNOFFICIAL Fedora Core Respins instead;
