Kernel panic can happen for a number of reasons. Some generally because of hardware.
How old is your pc?

Try disabeling SELinux-(if it's that)

If your not suspicious of the HDD or cables on their way out, try another distribution other than Puppy.
-::-Generally Puppy is ran Live-::-

Run Memtest overnight to make sure the RAM isn't bad.

When I had the kernel panic error that you had I found out that my HDD had bad sectors on it and had to purchase another HDD.

Check the health of the HDD-
