Subject: Re: Ramdisk error and the mux board

removing the MUX board solved the ramdisk problem at my HP, too, but i have 
another Kernel panic afterwards. The 32Bit Kernel as well as the 64Bit kernel 
(which outputs some strange pages before but kept running into the 
ramdisk-error, too) seems mainly to work, but after

freeing unused kernel memory: 320k freed

it shows a message like that:

Failed to execute /linuxrc'. Attempting defaults...
Setting up filesystem, please wait...

after minutes of waiting i pressed CR/LF , and there was

Kernel panic - not syncing: Kernel Fault.

This error occurred with the debian-etch iso, because i was not able to boot 
from the gentoo-isos, i dont know why, 

And there is another problem., after switching the machine off and on again 
after kernel panic, the display of tha machine said something like 

PS /*I dont know*/
cpus=3333 ps=4

I removed the third CPU and it worked again, could you tell me whats wrong 
with my Powersupply?
