All else fails, you may want to try and use up2date to update to the current kernel. On the i686 tree, it's version 2.4.20-20.9

Anyway it's worth a shot. I had good luck letting up2date update the kernel then rebooting. You may want to try it on your system or you may want to investigate further.
It looks like my system board requires the i586 tree, since that's what got installed.
I installed the 2.4.20.-20.9 kernel, but it had more problems.
After checking the Red hat site, I installed the 2.4.20-24.9 kernel, but it reports the same error as before.
Could there be some other packages - USB packages - that might work?
