I had this precise problem. You got this 'double fault' and then your
system just hangs right? This is how I got around it. 

Download the 3.0_SNAP install disk and use it. Someone on this list told me
there seems to be a problem with the 2.2.2 install floppies. I installed
3.0SNAP myself but you can change the installation in the setup stage by
entering 2.2.2_RELEASE in the appropriate block.

I hope your problem matches my answer. Other that that, listen to Doug
White. I don't even know what panic is yet. I just know that it is akin to
the blue screen of death.  :)

Thanks,
Jason Wells
