SubjectRe: Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address - 2.4.5

I have the same problem, only mine occurs early in the boot process
(right after a message saying something like "trying to mount old
root..."; or maybe s/mount/unmount)so I don't have a log. I have a
similar system: dual PIIIs w/ Adaptec AIC-7xxx controller, an HP Kayak.
I saw some earlier messages about AIC-7xxx problems w/ 2.4.5, so I tried
using aic7xxx_old and also tried a patch someone mentioned. I have yet
to be able to bring up my machine with 2.4.5 under any combination of
aic7xxx drivers, so maybe it's not the driver after all.

Any ideas? I built the kernel w/ gcc 2.91.66 (kgcc).

You can come up with a hundred reasons why a thing can't be done,
and you have to eat them all when someone else does it.
