I have a Intel P4 3.06Ghz machine with 512MB of DDR memory. I've set aside a 30GB partion for my Linux install. When I was try to install the OS for the frst time I received the following error message: Bad pmd in pte_alloc: 000000e7 - Kernel panic : Failed to allocate buffer hash table......then my system hangs here....What can I do to get around this?

Did you really mean RedHat V5.4 ... you need to install RedHat 9.0, Fedora Core 1 or Mandrake 9.2 if you are want a workstation to play with and learn linux ... (on a machine with those specs) RedHat 5.x will not function on a machine that new...

or if you are installing a workstation/server that you want to put into production environment and accomplish work, I would recommand WhiteBox Enterprise Linux.
