This is a NEC 120LT and it has been operating on RedHat 6.2 with no 
problems. Purchased RedHat 7.0 and loaded hopefully per the instructions. 
Booted the System and when the boot sequence reached the point of starting 
the service pcmcia, there were errors as follows:

Code: 89 02 85 c0 74 03 89 50 04 b8 01 00 00 00 eb 03 90 31 c0 c7
Aiee, killing interrupt handler
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!
In interrupt handler- not syncing

After restarting the boot sequence and saying NO to the Interactive 
startup for the pcmcia service, was able to complete the boot. The only 
thing that does not function, is the pcmcia. I also opened the GNOME RPM 
Window and verified the kernel-pcmcia-cs-2.2.16-22 and had (1)error. Is 
this a hardware problem or software.
