Are you trying to do a clean install of Ubuntu from CD onto a physical PC? Do you see any errors that occur leading up to this message?

In any case, that kernel panic message could be caused by a lot of different things. Often it's hardware related. I'd suggest running a memory test: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MemoryTest. You may have bad RAM or just need to reseat it.
