FC5: "Unknown interrupt or fault at EIP 00010006..."

Trying to install FC5, booting from first CD fails with message:

"Unknown interrupt or fault at EIP 00010006 00000060 c03a1e80"

and this message is endlessly repeated.

System is an old Compaq Proliant 2500, with 2 x 200MHz Pentium Pro, and FC4 runs fine.

Because of the Proliant's "memory hole", FC4 needs boot parameters
"memmap=exactmap mem=640k at 0 mem=95m at 1m"

Has something changed in this area with FC5?  What does the message actually mean?
