Description of problem:
The install kernel on 7.2 hangs after 'hda: hda1' if I set the diskette A and B
to 'none' on the bios of the A7V on a floppyless system. I have to tell the bios
disketter A is a 3.5" (even though the system doesn't have a floppy driver) to
get the thing to boot

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
put the cd in drive, reboot, wait.

Actual Results:  kernel hang

Expected Results:  happy boot

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-10 08:55:12 UTC
my a7v does this too; it tends to allocate irq 6 (floppy irq) to some PCI device
otherwise, and somehow that doesn't go down to well later on

Comment 2 Carlos Morgado 2002-04-10 11:13:06 UTC
Iirc mine gives out irq 6 to usb and pci 4/5. If I do pci guidance the board
goes into stupid mode and sits there trying to initialize the boards

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/
