[PlanetCCRMA] found answer to kernel panic

There appears to be a problem with 2.6.12x especially SMP kernels 
aborting with a panic, and it seems to be related to the detection of 
modules and creation of a correct initrd upon installation.  Upgrading 
to the latest version of mkinitrd (and making sure your 
/etc/modprobe.conf is correct) prior to installation, or redoing the 
initrd afterwards appears to solve it.

Sorry for posting following my personal panic, but I couldn't find the 
answer in a fairly diligent google/linux search, but it's all over 
Redhat/Bugzilla which I've not had a reason to visit until now.
