i've had this same problem... no matter what kernel i use, i would get a kernel panic. of course, only when using an external usb-cdrom drive. it would boot off of an external usb-hdd. i don't know what's wrong either.<br>
<br>hope someone else gives it a try to fix.<br><br>Dennis<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 7/23/06, <b class="gmail_sendername">Oleksiy</b> wrote:</span><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">
