    Hi and Welcome !

    Could you post last 3-4 lines of error message?

    Usually when you get such a problem a message before or after the kernel panic warning will give you a clue about whats wrong. Can you post the detailed error message because this is needed if you want to resolve your problem. One other thing to note is that Red Hat 9 reached its end of life a few years ago, so its no longer supported by REd hat and there are no more updates for it. You are better off using a newer distro such as Fedora, CentOS or RHEL.

    We can't help you unless we check detailed error message.
    RH9 is obsolete and isn't supported by RedHat. You will face a lot of Hardware/Software problems. I would suggest you to install Latest version of any Linux Distro. Fedora 7 is RedHat based only.
    Check this Poll.
