486 panics booting mcc-interim release :(

486/25, Micronics motherboard, Phoenix BIOS, Adaptec SCSI controller,
4MB ram.  Starts to boot mcc-interim release 0.96c, starts to load the
RAM disk, get a general protection error, then dies with a kernel panic
"trying to free up swapper memory space".

Any hints on this one?  I suspect a bad boot diskette, but would like
to know other things to try.

I'll be visiting the owner of the machine in Dallas Friday, and I'd like
to get off the plane with good news :)

1. MCC-interim release problem with login

I installed the MCC-interim .95c+ release, and
applied the listed bug fixes (/dev/tty ...), and ran
into numerous problems that were all fixed by replacing
/bin/login with a previous (.95a static) version.

The symptoms included a mangled bash environment, stty
reporting 0 rows and 0 columns, and vi defaulting to 25x80
(instead of the available 44x132).  Replacing /bin/login
fixed all of these problems.  Both the new and old bash
had the same problems with the new login, and worked fine
after login was replaced.

Did anyone else have these problems, or should I re-ftp
and try again?
