Description of problem:
The bug is two-fold.

1. The FC2 for x86_64 CD freezes during the hardware probe. You can
work around it by typing in "linux noprobe" at the boot prompt.

2. The CD Test screen appears before the hardware probe is done. Ergo,
what the user sees is the CD Test screen when the computer freezes.

Here is the hardware configuration in question:

MSI K8T Neo-FIS2R mainboard with onboard Promise 378 SATA RAID
Athlon64 3000+
ATI Radeon 9600XT graphics card
SoundBlaster Audigy2

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD using the hardware configuration described.

Actual Results:  The system froze when the CD Test screen appeared

Expected Results:  The install should have proceeded normally. Failing
that, the user should have been given some indication that it was the
hardware probe generating the crash, and that he could use the "linux
noprobe" option to proceed with the install.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 06:09:56 UTC
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.

Thank you.
