RHEL 4.0 32 bit version on AMD Opteron 246

I am trying to install RHEL 4.0 (32 bit) on an AMD Opteron 246 - 64 bit processor. The machine keeps freezing at something called HPET high resolution time sources - if I do nothing it will eventually give me a kernel panic error message. I have tried doing a text install but get the same thing. I've looked in the BIOS under the Advanced menu for HPET settings but could find nothing to disable this feature. I currently have RHEL 4.0 (64 bit) running on this machine and had no issues on install - I am also able to bypass the HPET message when I try reinstalling with the 64 bit version - however, it is the 32 bit version that I want to install. Can anyone offer any insight????

using rescue after booting from the install disk
see if you can get to your grub config /boot/grub/menu.lst
or something to that effect
and on the kernel line at the end write
or if you do the installer again redhat used to have a Kernel parameters field when you do the bootloader options page and put hpet=disable there
