I am trying to install 5.1-RELEASE on an old Compaq Proliant 3000. When
I boot on the cd, and choose 'default' in the bootloader - I get the
following error message - followed by a panic:
acpi: bad RSDP checksum (182)
NMI ISA D0, EISA ff
RAM parity error, likely hardware failure.
and the panic.
The server has been running fine for a long time with linux.
I have tried re-seating the RAM blocks - and I have also succeeded in
starting a linux installation.
Any ideas ? (Besides getting some new hardware)
