Bootloader loads initrd and vmlinuz, but when it comes to the point:
enabling ExtINT on CPU#0
ESR value before enabling vector: 00000002

it just freeze.

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/
