Description of problem:
Boot Hangs on the Adaptec Driver Initialization When using a SMP Kernel.   when 
the Stock RH7.3 SMP kernel didn't work, I tried the Stock Uniprossesor kernel, 
Boots fine!  I then built my own Minimilistic Kernel with SMP and that hung in 
the same place as the stock SMP kernel.  I will list exact hardware in the 
Addtional Information.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use Similar Hardware?
2.install Redhat 7.3
3.Try booting

Actual Results:  Hangs on Boot right after:
Loading Adaptec I2O Raid: Version 2.4 Build 5
Detecting Adaptec RAID Controllers...
Adaptec I20 RAID Controller 8 at f888d888 size 1888888 irq=18

Expected Results:  Normal Boot Up

Should have done this before posting bug!  turns out flashing motherboard to 
newest bios fixes problem.

BROKE:  Tyan S2466 Tiger MPX Motherboard (V4.01)
WORKS!: Tyan S2466 Tiger MPX Motherboard (V4.03d)

So no more problem.
