[PD] Trouble loading PD under Linux

 I've been using PD under windoze but have just successfully configured 
my laptop to dual boot XP and RH7.2 Linux.   I'm eager to get PD running 
under Linux. I'm a total Linux newbie so I may be doing something 
stupid. I'd appreciate any help you can provide. RH7.2 is using the 
2.4.7-10 kernel.
I downloaded PD (.34 ) as an rpm and rpm'd it with the -i option. When I 
type pd my machine freezes. I know it is starting because it is telling 
me I have no midi in or out. I can't even escape with  ctrl alt del . 
The message I get is:
Oops :0000
EIP: 0010: [<c98ffcca>]
EFLAGS: 00010246
 etc etc.

At the end of the message:
<0> kernel panic:Aiee,killing interrupt handler!
In interrupt handler-not syncing

Then nothing happens. I have to push the power switch to reboot. Do I 
have to upgrade my kernel? Any suggestions? Thanks!
