The 2.4.21 kernel had a bug in the vesa framebuffer memory allocation,
wich shows up at systems with 1GB or more ram when used with graphic
cards with 64MB of ram or more....

There are many ways around it... (atleast for MDK 9.1)

boot with one of theese:

linux vga=normal
linux mem=800

boot / install with only 512MB in the system,
get the latest kernel from security updates, install it,
and now you can add your other memory module back...

You can also get my modified install boot disks at:
