Bad EIP value


I configed and built a new 2.6.3 kernel today and when I attempt to boot with it I get a message:
"Code: Bad EIP value <0> kernel panic". I scouted around I can't seem to find an obvious explanation. I don't believe that I made any horrendous decisions configuring the kernel, but I can't discount that. But can anyone provide an off the cuff take on what could be wrong?

Hmmm, the only time I got this particular error message........
Code:
Bad EIP value
I was preparing to install Slackware 9.1 on a P4 1.5 GHZ box, My Wingman Joystick was plugged into a USB port........Slack would not install until I un-plugged the joystick........kinda weird......

Hmpf.. I just had almost the exact same problem!
Differences were that the device Slack didn't like was a Logitech optical USB mouse, and that I run on a AMD box. Well it works now since I saw your post and unplugged the mouse first thing I tried

Does booting it with the kernel option "nousb" do anything?

A bad EIP value could be as little as a jumper piece in the wrong slot or removed...

If all else fails look inside the computer for the CMOS memory on the motherboard. Somewhere near there you should find 3 poles and a jumper piece. If there isn't a jumper piece that may be your problem. If there is one try switching it between the poles.

This may reset your CMOS memory doing so... Someone with better a computer backround back me up on this one.

Bad EIP Value

I see little pattern with this error. Mandrake/Laptop users encounter a problem with the PNP module of the BIOS, requiring the BIOS setting for PNP OS to be set to "NO". The others of you here seem to have a USB problem.

I have no USB ports, and I have no option in the BIOS to disable PNP. I can individually set information to ISA or PCI or PCI/ISA PNP and I have made sure none of these are PNP enabled, however I still encounter the problem.

I have a very old P166, in a Amptron PM8600 motherboard with 64MB of RAM. A 40GB HDD, CD Burner, and CD-ROM drive. TSENG Labs 4000 (4100??) video card (PCI), SMC1211(TX) PCI Ethernet Card, and standard ISA 16-bit SoundBlaster (yup, an original).

Install goes fine as with the Mandrake installs of the same error, but during boot-up it hangs at "Enabling local Filesystem quotas". After 10mins (and the rest) it finally spits out a whole lot of garble ending with Bad EIP Value.

I do get ACPI: Unable to locate RSDP" at the beginning of the boot-up. But other than that nothing appears to go wrong until the local filesystem quotas are supposed to be enabled.
