I also get this with the FC2 recovery CD.

decompressed.  As soon as the decompressed kernel is started, it
panics with the message "Attempted to kill init!".


still the same Kernel panic.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 00:57:15 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
