Description of problem:
I have a brand new P4, ASUS P4B-M board and Adaptec 29160 SCSI card.
On the SCSI bus an IBM disk and a Quantum DLT8000 reside.
The installer of RH 7.2 hangs when loading the aic7xxx module.
Trying booting with 'noprobe' and choosing aic7xxx_mod didn't change anything.
Trying booting with 'apic' hangs the computer before it gets to aic7xxx.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on the computer
2. Insert the RH 7.2 CD#1 and boot from it
3. Enter "linux" at the syslinux boot prompt
Actual Results: Computer hangs forever at aic7xxx screen
Expected Results: The installation should've continued.
Same problem exists with installation of RH 7.3
