Description of problem:
During the install of Redhat 8.0 from a floppy, the driver disk is inserted to
add the aha152x module for the scsi controller.  It reports that the module is
installed but on the Alt F4 console it showed an error for the software
interrupt (in the default case, 11).  The parameters had been specified
correctly and various combinations were tried.  This controller (module) worked
fine with Redhat 7.3.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot with boot floppy (boot.img) choose install from disk.
2.Insert driver disk when prompted (drvblock.img).
3.Load aha152x scsi module with appropriate parmaeters
4.Watch it blow up (actually an infinite loop).

Actual Results:  It returned an error on console Alt F4 and loops back to prompt
for CD vs. disk drive distribution.

Expected Results:  It should have loaded the driver and moved on to disk

I need a new set of install disks (boot.img and drvblock.img) so I can install
off my internal CD-ROM drive. At least then I can pull the new kernel packages
off the network so the SCSI devices continue to work.

I'm adding this note b/c the updated packages at
http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2002-206.html are irrelevant if I can't run
the installer. :-(
