Description of problem:
Booting Linux with kernel parameter pci=biosirq crashes the kernel right after
"Uncompressing linux". I see 2 or 3 more lines appearing and then the crash.
This happens to the kernel found on the installation disk (and used during
installation) and after installation with the "normal" kernel.

The bug did not occur using the kernels of redhat 7.3

I write down some of the information printed on the screen. However, I did not
wrote all the adresses. If you need more information, please contact me!

This happens only on my laptop (siemens-nixdorf m700) and not on other machines.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot using kernel parameter

Actual Results:  EIP is at Using_Versions ... [2.4.18-14]
Call Trace: pcibios_get_irq_routing_table

Code: ....
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!

Expected Results:  boot

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/
