Red Hat 7.0 was installed without any problems.

Couldn't install Red Hat 7.2 as kswapd hung when booting.

memtest86 claimed the memory was OK.

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/
