Description Need Real Name 2000-11-19 23:18:42 UTC
When the kernel is booting, when it's trying to read the partition table,
begins to output this message multiple times:
hdd interrupt lost

Hdd is an ATAPI Iomega ZIP drive. I open the box and remove the ZIP from 
the computer. Then the kernel boots and the setup starts from an IDE 
CDROM, but at the middle of package installation, the process stops and 
the console is filled by:
hdc interrupt lost

I move the CDROM to hdb, but only change the error message.
With Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, all the hardware works well.

The computer is a Pentium 166, with a motherboard Soyo (chipset intel HX).

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
persists.

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/
