SubjectOops 2.2.17 and 2.0.37pre10 - same machine
I am trying to install Slackware Linux.
I boot the 2.2.17 from slackware-current series
I fdisk /dev/hda1 as 128MB Swap and /dev/hda2 as root.
I run mkswap -c -v1 /dev/hda1 - it chugs and finishes...
I run swapon /dev/hda1 and I get an oops!

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000001c

This is a brand new machine.
PIII 800 (133Mhz bus)
Acorp 6BX/VIA83
128Mb RAM

I thought it might have something to do with the IDE drive or controller.
I installed a trusty Adaptec 2940AU and a Seagate 4G drive. Same thing?!?!
So it is not the drives or controllers...
For kicks I put in a Slackware 3.9 (kernel 2.0.37pre10) cd I had next to me.
Boot. fdisk - partitions ok.
mkswap -c -v0 /dev/sda1
Oops.....

Can anyone help me? I have scoured the BIOS for any flaky settings.
I can see none. HHHHhhhhheeeeelllllpppppp..... :-)
