kernel panic: context corrupt.........
Well I've scanned my hard drive and haven't found any errors, I'm not sure what is causing mandrake linux 8.1 to freeze if someone could help me out I would appreciate it....

it sounds like something wasn't copied correctly during installation... is this a fresh install, or are you trying to upgrade the kernel?

This is a fresh install from mandrake linux 8.1..........I'm not sure what was happening but I talk it to get it fix cause when installing linux it would constantly freeze I'm not sure what could be the problem I did a full scan of my drive and there are no bad sectors on it.......

i've been doing a search on that panic - everything i've found points to a hardware problem, but i haven't been able to narrow it down to what it could be specifically. could you give a list of the hardware you're trying to install the linux on?

ok... found some more info. that error occurs during the machine check handling for the processor - an error there usually means a bad or overclocked cpu.
