Are there any gotchas that I am missing, I am trying to install Lustre on a RHEL 4 Workstation machine, and getting a kernel panic.

Does anyone have this  version of lustre running on under RHEL 4 WS?
Pentium 3, 2 cpu 1 GHz processors, with 2 Gbyte of RAM.

Greatly help any guidance or suggestions.

Many thanks
