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.

Any help?

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

How reproducible:

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.

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/
