Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-02-11 14:34:33 UTC
Is this a 440GX chipset machine ?

Comment 2 Dirk Czirpka 2002-02-11 16:12:56 UTC
Server chipset: Intel 440 BX (dual processor board)

Comment 3 Dirk Czirpka 2002-03-01 08:29:36 UTC
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!

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

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/
