From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (WinNT; U)

Description of problem:
RedHat 7.1 install to the IDE drive appeared to be successful.  Following 
the install the system was rebooted, kernel startup errors are 
displayed and the system hangs.  The last messages on the console are:

Freeing unused kernel memory: 244k freed
hda: timeout waiting for DMA
ide_dmaproc: chipset supported ide_dma_timeout func only: 14
hda: irq timeout: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error 
hda: irq timeout: error=0x84 {DriveStatusError BadCRC }
hda: timeout waiting for DMA
ide_dmaproc: chipset supported ide_dma_timeout func only: 14

Now the system is hung - no response to keyboard input

Actual Results:  See console errors reported in description - it's dead

Could you try adding "ide=nodma" to the lilo prompt ?
(eg type ctrl-x to go to the text mode lilo screen, then type "linux ide=nodma")
