If it helps I have P75 on Gigabyte with Fx chipset. No modem, no
network.
I didnt compile my kernel becauose i saw this:

I had the same thing happen, lots of hex and GPF0000's. turned out it
was faulty memory. Try swapping SIMMS with another system, or even
swapping them round in the banks. You could try a memory checker, but
I did that and it failed to report any errors even though the SIMMs
were definetly broken.

Hope this helps.

I also had something very similar happen & no one I asked had ever run into it before, though they suspected memory to be the
problem.  I tried swapping the SIMM modules around but it didn't imprve the situation.  I called a local computer store to ask if
they could test SIMMs.  They said they could, but they would be using software.  I had hoped for some sort of hardware memory
checker as I had run every software checker I could find.  None of those turned up anything and everything ran fine under Win95.

The one thing that the tech I spoke to said that triggered the resolution was that mayber the SIMMs or the CPU was overheating.
Sure enough, my CPU fan had died & as soon as I replaced it, the errors disappeared.  I don't know if this applies to your
situation, but it took me a while to track this down.  If I hadn't left the cover of my machine after swapping memory banks, it
probably would have taken me even longer to notice what had happened.

Good luck,

1. Question: Disabling CPUID serial number...general protection fault 0000

I have a new Asus A7V (KT133 chipset) Socket A motherboard with AMD
Thunderbird 750 Mhz that seems to install Redhat 6.2 just fine.  Upon reboot
and entering thru LILO the following error occurs:

Disabling CPUID serial number...general protection fault 0000 -> crash !!!

I looked through the BIOS and there does not seem to be any flags to shut
CPU identity off.  I have also heard that if I set the env var
X86_SERIAL_NR=1 that should fix it.  How does one do that from the LILO
prompt ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated ....
