Description of problem:
I am new to this, but since building a PC with Linux I cannot boot it without 
getting some error messages; I reboot several times and eventually get in to 
The latest one began with
"INIT Entering runlevel 5
Kernal panic; fix pre_chain allocation you lazy bastard"

Expected Results:  It should take me less than 2 minutes to log in

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
