Description of problem:
The installer kernel hangs after booting from CD or floppy
on Tyan S1686S motherboard with a Pentium II CPU.
It happens after enabling the local APIC and the last
message displayed is:
ESR: value before enabling vector: 00000004
Passing apic, noapic or noprobe options to the kernel
does not make a difference.
This problem is around since limbo. Is it really neccessary
to have APIC support enabled by default in the installer kernel?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD or floppy
2. Press enter at "boot:" prompt
Actual Results: Kernel hangs
newer kernels no longer have the APIC support compiled into the boot kernel...
phoebe3 install boots fine now, thanks
