- Dell Precison 530 with
- 2 Xeon 1.7GHz
- 1GB RDRam

I get to the boot screen and then typing linux <options> with
any options - text nousb, nofb etc - causes it to hang
after /sbin/loader init.
At that point the screen had green/black dots/grabage
that keep scrolling...

Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
