On halt, there is some kind of an error

We are using : AMD k6-2 450 on a SOYO
5EMA+ mobo, 128 Mb SDRAM, 4Mb
Trident AGP 9750 graphics card.
'reboot' seems to work fine, no other
problems at all either.
I can send you the details of all the
error codes etc spewed over the
screen if you like as well.
Sorry - I got the error wrong! It's a general protection fault, not a
fatal excetpion error.
What happens is:
The system is halted.
Stopping all md devices.
general protection fault: f000
followd by loads of junk.

Try the patch that I'll be sending in a minute.
Sorry, I didn't receive a patch?
Go to the bugzilla page for this bug and click on the
'Bug #4349 email' link.

I hate to seem ignorant, but where does this patch go, and how do I
make it happen?
