Hi. I'm trying to install off a daily (last few days[0]), so i dont
think silo config is an option(?).
Unfortunately i still get the same error. [1]
The error is as follows (sorry about any line breaks):

Allocated 8 Megs of memory at 0x40000000 for kernel
Loaded kernel version 2.6.18
Loading initial ramdisk (3923248 bytes at 0x2F802000 phys, 0x40C00000
virt ) ...
Illegal Instruction
ok op-0

This is the same error as before the new kernel.

ps. (for the archives, Linux is not an option. install expert rescue
auto are).
