Additional info:

I tried also the solution with the 440gx chipset (linux apic), but it does not 
I can not install any RedHat version (tried 7.2 and 7.3) on the new Tyan 
Thunder K7X Mainboards.
I am not sure if the fault comes from the aic7xxx driver, but even if i load

All other distributions (i tried Debinand SuSE) do not have any problems 
during the installation process.

I can also load the aic7xxx without any problems, if the USB mouse is 

There were some USB errors (timeouts) during the boot process.
