Description of problem:
The installer hangs during the initial boot of the installer cd.
It specifically hangs during the partition check portion with
hda: spurious 8259A interupt: irq 7
7.2 gets passed this fine, as well as the 8.0.92 beta phoebe.
I've tried every combination of kernel options i could think
of all to no avail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Boot with cd #1 of redhat 7.3 or 8.0 on a compaq presario 906US.
Ok, using the kernel and isolinux files from the beta version of redhat, I
managed to make a redhat 8.0 disk that would get past the initial partition
check, however when it came to the selecting of the installation media, it was
unable to find the cdrom!
