The bad pte message is not your problem. This message is only cosmetic, and will occur on every boot--it happens when Linux is scanning the APICs and re-mapping the same virtual memory address to several different possible APIC addresses.
A patch was applied to later kernels (RHEL3 doesn't display these messages) that prevents this message from occurring.

Subject: bad pte
I have a 2650 with RH linux 2.1. The system locked up completely on me
so I had to shut it down and reboot it. I was looking through my log
files and I am seeing a line in my message log file that says bad pte
c0004fb0. I am seeing things that say that is bad memory. Is that true?
