AMD, Cyrix and 2.2r don't mix

Hello list,
I recently downloaded the CD image of potato, officially called '2.2r'
I tried an install on an AMD 1.1 TB Socket A w/ 768 mb ram, Asus AV7 motherboard
I got a kernel panic halt, then it completely freezes up, ctl-alt-del don't even work.
Last week I tried to install the same 2.2r, but for a different media, onto a Compaq Presario w/ a Cyrix CPU,
same thing, kernel halt then it spits out is junk a mile long.
I have installed this version successfully, just not on these two machines. 
The machines I have had luck w/ all had Intel CPU Pentiums, and one Pentium !!!
What this all boils down to is that I gotta be missing something here.  Do AMD and Cyrix CPU require a special boot mode or something?
Anyone experienced the same problem with AMD and Cyrix?
Maybe potato 2.2r official CD images aren't ready to be classified as STABLE,
