Description of problem:
Booting off a CD with sytem installed on USB disk.(My USB ports are not boot ready)
Kernel 2.6.9-1.667 works fine from Grub installed on the CD
Kernel 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 gives a kernel panic: same instructions from grub.conf but given manually at grub> boots system flawlessy.
Init file is:

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
