Description of problem:
I tested Redhat 7.2 AND Redhat 7.3.
Since i updated the Kernel on a the 7.2
System, a PS/2-Keyboard must be connected!
The old 2.7.4 Kernel boot without!
RH 7.3 does the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use Redhat 7.2 or 7.3 Kernel newer than 2.4.7 (2.4.9x - 2.4.18.x)
Actual Results: Booting stops on a "init Bios" - screen.
Expected Results: normal complete booting as Kernel 2.4.7 from RH 7.2 did.
Dell Inspiron 4100,

I just upgradet to RH 8.0 and it seems that this problem has been solved.
But what's with all the old servers?
I'd love to use them with an USB-Keyboard instead of having to use a PS/2...
