I am not able to boot Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1 Server on Intel D102 Motherboard. I am able to install RHEL 5.1 properly, but cannot boot. It shows kernel panic. Is there any solution to this problem?

You need to create a space for which to install Linux. That likely means resizing Windows. Partition Magic is a good Windows utility to accomplish this, although there is a Linux version called Gaprtedthat will do essentially the same thing. You download the Gparted live cd, burn to disk, and run it from your computer. You must go into "setup" and set your Bios to boot from CDROM before booting the Hard Drive. Once booted, follow the on screen instructions. Resize Windows, (but NOT before a thorough defrag of your Windows drive), and create a "blank space" for Linux. Afterward, boot your Linux distro, (RedHat 9 was a great distro, but a newer version of a Red Hat based distro would serve you better, sayCentOS or Fedora Core), and follow the online instructions. Good Luck!
Redhat may not support this board. You need to read the supported hardware under your version of Redhat.
With Linux, as with any operating system, you should always get the latest version. The newer versions may support the newer hardware. This is not always so...
Go to the support on the redhat.com website. If you have a subscription, you will have complete support. Go to free websites for Linux and ask with blog or other email, etc. about your problems with the specific version you have. It is very important when asking for help, to state your version. This way the helper will have more places to go to help you.
Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora. If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.
