Description of problem:
On tyan 2882 dual opteron the fedora core 4 installer panics early in the boot
process. we have motherboards with bios version 2882 204 and 303 (latest) 2GB of
f ram dual 244 or dual 252 cpu's. two run fc3 currently without problems, 2
we're trying to install fc4 on. bios is set with failsafe defaults.
