Unhappy Kernel Panic: Aiee, Killing Interrupt Handler

Hello everyone,

I have been running RedHat 7.1 on my home computer for about 6mos now. The machine is used as a gateway to the internet running adsl, ipmasq, and firewall. NIC cards are a pci kingston and an ISA netgear. AMD 500Mhz processor, 128 mb RAM, and a kinda crappy motherboard. I was working on some shell scripting when the following error was given:

$ Oops: 002
CPU: 0

(Bunch of stuff here I didn't write down....)

Kernel Panic: Aiee, Killing Interrupt Handler
In (or ln not sure) Interrupt Handler- Not Syncing

My computer completely froze at this point. I tried to get it back by rebooting multiple times but it would either go directly to this output or allow me to boot up and then crash when I was in the X environment. I tried booting it up in single user mode and under the safe environment and it still wouldn't work. I'm at a loss here as to why it's crashing soo much. It has worked great for a while but there seems to be some kernel bug going on.

I can supply more info if needed. The problem is it crashes so quick I can't look at any log files

Any help would be much appreciated!

So far I see there's no answer to this problem on this forum so I try to describe what I did. I've came across this problem:

< snip >
Kernel Panic: Aiee, Killing Interrupt Handler
In (or ln not sure) Interrupt Handler- Not Syncing
<End snip>

on a system with the kernel 2.6.16,
and the GOOGLE tels that there were similar errors since 2.4.* branch so the thought was
although Kernel casts this Error but it's not the Kernel's foult..

So 've teken a nerarer look at bios configuration and found that in my AmiBios
Configuration Screen under the ide-settings the S.M.A.R.T option was desabled.

Now I've enabled it and it looks to me that was it,
My system rans now very smoothly.

Sincerely yours Ladys and Gentlmen,
as much as not Ladys and not Gentlemen,
or men thet not very gentle and women
that'not very lady ;}
