Kernel Panic really often

I've an Acer 314T.
I've installed RH 6.0 on it.
Everythig works all right: all the application runs.
The problem is that, quite often, even if i'm not doing
nothing in particular (for example only playing mp3 files in
console with mpg123) it crashes and a kernel panic appears
with the error "could not allocate virtual memory at the
what can it be?
i've seen at the linux on laptop page that my notebook works
ok with kernel 2.0.x.
Maybe it's a 2.2.x bug?
It sounds more like you may have a bad memory location or two that the
2.2.5 kernel (memory handling is different that in older kernels) has
uncovered. You can troubleshoot this by typing
at the LILO boot: prompt which will narrow your memory space down to
see if the problem goes away. You can experiment with the memory size
to see where it goes away.
