Comment (by alexander at linuxfromscratch.org):

 hlenderk at bcpl.net says that he was able to extract the following oops from
 the kernel on a failing PC:

 Oops: 0002 [#1]

 Code: Bad EIP value

 This suggests that booting with the following command line may be a

 linux noapic pci=noacpi nohlt

 If that doesn't help, add: mem=nopentium
