ubuntu, kernel panic and bad EIP value.

Trying to load Ubuntu 5.10 onto a Gateway computer, about two years old, 833MHz, 128MB RAM. It boots, but stops at an error saying

Call Trace :
Code : Bad EIP value
<0>Kernel Panic - not syncing : Attempted to kill init!

there's a whole page's worth of text, but at the top, it says 'Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address bfcfdcc7 and then carries on about EIP etc. Runs no problem on this PC though (2.4, 512 etc)
