Description of problem:
  I am attempting to install and run RedHat 8.0 on an IBM Thinkpad iSeries 
notebook (model 1171-9bu).  The installation program hangs on the USB ohci 
driver step.  After searching the web, I was able to get around that problem by 
specifying "boot: linux nousb" and booting directly from the cd-rom.  The rest 
of the installation seems to have completed normally.  (A complete re-partition 
& format of the hdd was done.  The Server option was selected & some of package 
selection was customized.)
  After the install completed and the system tries to reboot, it hangs on 
loading the usb ohci driver.  I can not get RedHat to load/boot/run because of 
this problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to load / boot / run any bootable image (boot disk image, cd-rom) on an 
IBM Thinkpad iSeries notebook.  Model 1171-9bu.

Actual Results:  The system load / boot hangs and does not proceed.  Must power-
off the notebook to recover.

Expected Results:  The system should load / boot properly

This problem seems to be isolated to the specific notebook model noted above.  
The 8.0 install cdrom image booted successfully on an IBM Thinkpad T23 (model 
2647-CU5).  Also, the latest BIOS update for the iSeries (1171-9bu) was 
downloaded and applied.
