Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-06-03 19:10:46 UTC
"Call trace here"
Any way to get the top 2 or so items of that ?

Also, could you try booting with typing
linux mem=xxxM
at the syslinux prompt where xxx is the amount of ram in your machine minus 16

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-06-03 19:41:46 UTC
Call trace is as follows:
[<c01a0398>]  "Duplicate is as reported on screen"

I tried using the mem=XXXM parameter but it made no difference to the outcome. 
In my case the XXX was 176 (I have 192M of RAM installed).

Comment 3 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:39:38 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
