Voodoo 3/5 cards cause hang in installer

When trying to start anaconda using either a Voodoo 3 or Voodoo 5 video
adaptor, it hangs with no error messages whatsoever. It is right after
mouse probing and before trying framebuffer. I have the cards at my desk if

Please look at this asap.

conflict of some kind. I was able to get the cards to work by disabling some
thing in the BIOS. Also the cards work in other motherboards I tested fine with
