Description of Problem:
User can't boot installer on Dell Latitude c600...
Hangs around language selection or keyboard selection.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert boot floppy (made from standard boot..img)
2. boot with CDROM in...
3. macihne hard locks
His CDROM is on the Docking station... He is using the floppy to boot
because this CDROM is not bootable.
I have Cc:'d him on this report...
These are the messages I managed to see in the log screen before the lockup:
<6>(SCSI0)<Adaptec AIC-7880 Ultra SCSI adapter> found at PCI 2/7/0
<6>(SCSI0) Narrow Channel, SCSI ID=7, 16/255 SCBs
<6>(SCSI0) Downloading sequencer code... 436 instructions downloaded
<4>(SCSI0) Couldn't register IRQ 10, ignoring controller
This is the result of lspci on RH7.0 (2.2.19-7.0.1) for the SCSI:
02:07.0 SCSI Storage Controller: Adaptec AIC-7880U (Rev 02)
I think you should use the pcmcia.img and pcmciadd.img for the boot disks on
laptops. Does using those instead of boot.img help?
I'll give it a try but won't be until 6/18 as I am out of town and don't have
the 7.1 distribution disks with me.
Ok. Putting in NEEDINFO until then.
Using the pcmcia.img and the pcmciadd.img I get a farther but it still breaks:

What kind of cdrom drive is this ?
It's a Sony CD-RW CRX700E. It's in the docking station.
Any progress on this bug? I'd like to install 7.1 someday. BTW, I also tried
installing from the CD-RW in one of the laptop bays (vs the docking station)
and had the same results.
Closing due to inactivity.
