I had a problem installing FC4 on my AMD64 - I googled it and found that you
need to type a few characters of gibberish at the install prompt, then press
enter.  Then you can go ahead with the install and you won't get the kernel
panic anymore. I can't remember what the exact problem was but that did fix

Can't be of any more help as I haven't used any of the hardware you've
