Kernel Panic - Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address

THANKS for spending you time to read this article.

I am trying so hard to install linux slackware 3.0.0 (ELF) on a Pentium PC (8M ram,
540M winc, PCI) and some strange things are happening.

The problem occurs during the bootdisk (I've tried bare, abare, net, xt and all them
gave the same problem, with the same output error (including the numbers bellow)).

Loadin ramdrive...
