Description of problem:
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
Chip Turner had the answer.
"idle=poll" makes it bootable.

Checking with hardware manufacturer...
