succesfully screwed up boot while messing with apm

While trying to get apm suspend working correctly with the PCMCIA card in my IBM TP X21, I seem to have broken Linux. I'm running SuSE 9.1

Here's what I get at boot, immediately after it activates the loopback interface (successfully)

Cleaning up using /sbin/modify_resolvconf: done
double fault, gdt at c01192el, esp = ce7ffffc
edx = ce7fe000, ebx = 00000000, ecx = 00000007b, edx = ce8000a0
esi = 00000000, edi = c0119260

and then it locks. Or it reboots.

if you have a linux bootdisk or cdrom, boot from it, if cdrom login as root, then make a dir in your ramdisk /oldroot, then mount your old root dir to it i.e.
mkdir oldroot
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda1 /oldroot
then goto /oldroot/etc and modify your lilo.conf to match an old copy of your kernel then run lilo to set it up. if you didn't modify your kernel, then goto /oldroot/etc and modify your rc.local if that is what you did to change your apm settings. Hope this helps.
