Is this a 440GX chipset machine ?
Server chipset: Intel 440 BX (dual processor board)
The problem is similar to the Intel gx chipset problem. I can install RH7.2 if
I use the "apic" option on lilo prompt. Then the installation goes on.
After installation there is another problem. We use only one cpu, so RH7.2
installs the single cpu kernel. This kernel do not recognize the boot
option "apic" on linux prompt. If we install (manually aktivate the kernel-smp
package at installation) the smp-kernel everthing works. After installation you
can make your own single cpu kernel, but aktivate APIC support!
