Description Warren Togami 2003-10-26 17:27:24 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031022

Description of problem:
Athlon64 3200+
MSI Neo motherboard
Built by ATI Radeon 9200
160MB IDE hard drive on VIA VT8237 PATA /dev/hda

Kernel panic during partition check of hda when booting from Disc 1.  Same
problem with boot.iso for x86_64 from rawhide.

The best I could get for the moment is a photo of the panic dump

dmesg, lspci and more information about this hardware from 32bit Linux

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 3 AS for AMD64

Checking with hardware manufacturer...
