Description of problem:
Installing on the following machine type:
Thunder K7X (S2468) Motherboard with 2 channel scsi (68pin)
(1) +1800 AMD MP
Segate Cheetah 18.4 Gig SCSI (Master)
WesterDigital 75Gig IDE Drive 7200rpm (Slave)
(2) IDE CD-ROM drives (1 is a cd-rewriter other is dvd-rom)
Using the Adaptec AIC-7899W controller
SCSI Drive has been partitioned for 5gig for Xos and 1gig for swap.
When installing RH 8.0 the installation hangs when installing the Aic7XXX
Kernal Panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler
Interrupt handler - not syncing
I did try using the older scsi driver in RH 7.1 which got me alittle farther
along in the installation but eventually ended up in a kernal panic again like
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from CD
2.Load in either graphical or text interface (don't matter)
3.Load hangs on installation of driver aic7xxx
Expected Results: Driver should be supported in the new version.
Can you try using the v6.2.28 version of the aic7xxx driver?
A Driver Update Diskette for RH 8.0 (and other Linux distributions)

How do I go about opening these files? They don't seem to open in WinXP Pro
using WinZip or PowerArchiver.
I don't recall if gunzip is provided on the CDROM to decompress the image,
but many web browsers know how to do this for you. If not, there are
versions of gunzip available on the net that run in Win32 OSes.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
