HP DL 385 G2.
CentOS 5.1
Kernel 2.6.18-92.1.10.el5

I have a newly installed server that was running x. It told me there
were updates to install. I accepted that all, except sysreport as I
always seem to have problems installing. I rebooted, having set the
default run level to 3. I then got a red screen with an "illegal
OpCode" error message.

I have used my CD to boot into rescue more. My old system is mounted under /mnt.

I would also like to get my system back up and running. I have put a
fair bit of time into loading libraries and software.

I have tried editing the grub.conf and commenting out the
2.6.18-92.1.10.el5 kernel so it used a previous kernel but I can not
get past this error. There is no message from grub. The system comes
straight from the BIOS messages into this red screen.

Is there any other ways to determine what the problem is? The error
messages says nothing more that a few lines of hex which don't look
useful to me.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. TIA.
