SubjectRe: Kernel panic with Linux 2.2.0pre2

Don call me as an astronomy question and lets see what happened and when?

615-371-0304 second line preferred
615-373-4897 primary line

What was the last kernel that you had success with and were there any
patches applied?

I can back the changes to that kernel and see if that is the problem.
I recall that the ASUS board you have has wierd ways of getting DMA setup
on the PIIX3. Did you put the UDMA drive on the PIIX3?
