Description of problem:
Hi, when I try to install RH 7.2 (2.4.7-10) from CDROM, immediately after
selecting setup mode (lowres, rescue, expert...) I get the error: "<0>kernel
panic: Attempted to kill init!"
Note that I have AMD XP 1600+, ABIT KR7A-R Raid VIA KT266A DDRam ATA 133 and 
256 MB DDRAM. Moreover, the HDD which I'm
trying to install OS into, already contains RH 7.2 (which I'm going to
overwrite).


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from CDROM
2.select whatever setup mode
3.wait 3 seconds

A work around is to disable the RAID in the bios, i believe that the kernel is 
panicing on the new ata133 raid chip.

if you diable the chip, kernel werks fine,
