Description of problem:
I have a VMIC 7766 VME processor (Pentium III @ 800 MHz) with 1GB of
compact flash disk (1025 MB SanDisk SDCFJ-1024).  The BIOS claims UDMA
is disabled.  I'm trying to boot RedHat 8.0, but we crash with a
partition check in the flash disk with the standard message
"Serverworks OSB4 in impossible state ... ".  I can't find in the BIOS
a way around it.

What do I do next?


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from floppy created from 8.0 disc 1

Actual Results:  partition check in the flash disk with the standard
message "Serverworks OSB4 in impossible state ... ". 

Expected Results:  continue with boot process

Additional info:

The standard message regarding disable UDMA and send the message to
osb4-bug@ide.cabal.tm, but this noede does not exist.

You don't specify which kernel this is; this is supposed to be fixed
in the current kernels for RHL8 and later
