Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

I am installing redhat 7.2 on a brand new computer, it is the only operating system. First off I am totally unfamiliar with the linux os.
Next I have installed the linux os 3 times now. It works initially then on a reboot I cannot get it going again.
I get "kernel panic aieee" I have to power cycle to recover, and it may take 3 or 4 reboots to get back to the desktop.
When I do get to the desk top, the system will hang and require another power cycle.
I was putting Linux on this computer so I could learn about it, but I can't even get by the successful install/operation of the OS.
I know the OS is picky or specific on what it likes, so, what should I look for to resolve these issues?

This is what linux is all about, people helping people.

It's weird that you are getting a kernel panic immediatly after a fresh installation. Either something went really screwy in the installation, or you may have a defective installation medium (ie. cd). Try doing what chinozie suggested, and if problem persists, let us know.
