Same problem when upgrading my HP Netserver 5/66 LX running RH 6.1 to latest
kernels 2.2.14-12.

 I have the same problems with Adaptec AHA2840 VLB SCSI
adapter (aic7770 based) on my 486. I just can't install
RedHat 6.2, it hangs during "aic7xxx module load".

See bugs 11610, 11729, 11790, 11797

I fixed mine by overwriting the aic7xxx files (and directory) in the source
    distro with the ones from RH 6.1.  A pain to get ahold of them, but once I
    I then re-compiled the kernel and the aic problems went away.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
