Comment 1 Justin T. Gibbs 2003-01-10 19:04:19 EST
This is caused by memory mapped I/O not working on this VIA motherboard
*unless* you disable PCI byte merging in the BIOS.  The memory mapped I/O
test in aic7xxx version 6.2.26 detects the bogus BIOS settings and falls
back to PIO.
Comment 2 Justin T. Gibbs 2003-01-21 19:34:36 EST
Version 6.2.28 of the aic7xxx driver is now available in both driver update
diskette and RPM format for RH8.0.  You will need the DUD version to successfully
install.  You can fetch it from:

http://people.FreeBSD.org/~gibbs/linux/DUD/aic7xxx

the RPM version is here:

http://people.FreeBSD.org/~gibbs/linux/RPM/aic7xxx

With 6.2.28, you sould be able to install regardless of your BIOS setting
for PCI byte merging.
Comment 3 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:40:13 EDT
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
persists.

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/
