Kernel panic during installation

This is the error I get while slackware is installing packages:
see pic:

What is causing it and how can I fix it?

P.S. forgot to write. Slackware is 13.1

Possibly a bad stick of RAM. Run memtest to make sure
Try booting with noapic acpi=off (one or the other, or both).

Could be something else. ACPI issue, BIOS issue, bad ISO burn, .....
Some hardware details would be nice.

Actually I managed to fix the problem.
For some reason installation caused my CPU to overheat. Lowering CPU frequency worked like a charm (I'm writing from my new Slackware 13.1 OS )
I had no idea that a mere installation can be that CPU intensive.
Thanks for your help anyway.
