Subjectkernel panic when adding ram
I apologize if this isn't the appropriate place for this question. I'm 
having trouble when I try to add a second stick of ram to the #2 slot on
my motherboard. At this point I don't know whether it's a hardware or
software problem.

I have two 256mb ECC Crucial ram that I cannot get to work in Linux. At
first I thought one of the sticks was bad, but I've been able to get
both sticks to work when used alone in the first slot. Both sticks
together will not work. The computer will boot up fine and the bios
passes things off to the OS. The bios appears to detect all the ram.
Linux (RedHat 7.1) will start to boot but will kernel panic soon after.
I've tried it with Kernel 2.4.2-2 and Kernel 2.4.12.

Here is everything I could get off the screen when it kernel panics:

IP: routing cache hash table of 4096 buckets, 32kbytes
uhici.c: cc00: host system error, PCI problems?
uhici.c: cc00: host controller halted. very bad.
TCP: Hash tables configured (established 32768 bind 32768)
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 177e7038
printing eip:

Could someone please tell me what is happening? Thanks in advance for
