SubjectProblem with kernel booting
Date
Hi.

I have one problem with Linux:
I installed Linux Mandrake 6.1 in the PC
of a friend: Pentium III 500 MHz, with 128 MB of
RAM and 2 GB for a ext2 partition. It was
running well, but one day he "crashed" the BIOS
(don't ask me how he did it), and the technical
service repaired the computer (they changed
the mother board).
Then, my friend started the PC and it showed:

Linux version 2.2.13-7 mdk (root@kenibi.mandrakesoft.com) (gcc
version 2.95.1 199990816(release)) #1 Wed 15 18:02:18 CEST 1999

Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task
In swapper task- not syncing


After this, the kernel hangs and he has
to reboot the PC.

Linux runs with Lilo, and lilo.conf is like this:

boot=/dev/hda3
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
timeout=50
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=linux
root=/dev/hda3
read-only
append="mem=128M"
other=/dev/hda1
label=win
table=/dev/hda


Do you know what happens with it?
I feel a bit responsible for it, because I
installed Linux in his PC and now he can't run it.

I hope you may help us.
Thank you in advance.
