Description of problem:
After upgrading to kernel 2.4.18-24, the system hangs on boot on a 
Shuttle SS51G.  There is a single hard drive attached to the first IDE
controller, on the SiSE962 chip.  The drive is an IBM DTLA-307020
(20GB, ATA100).  The system does boot with the 2.4.18-10 kernel OK.
The grub settings are:

default=1
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-24.7.xsmp)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-24.7xsmp ro root=/dev/hda1 hdc=ide-scsi
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.18-24.7.xsmp.img

        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.18-10.img

Also, cat /proc/scsi/sis shows:

The actual point at which the system hangs with the 2.4.18-24 kernel
is:

Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 6:31
ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx

After this I get no further output and I can do nothing with the
system except power cycle or hit the reset button.

Also, I should not that I was running the i686 smp version of the
kernel, although the system is not an SMP box.


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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Attempt to boot the 2.4.18-24 kernel from the hard drive on a Shuttle
SS51G (using the on-board IDE controller in the SiS962 chip).

Actual Results:  System hung.

Expected Results:  System should have continued booting.

Additional info:

I did try the ide0=ata66 parameter with the 2.4.17-24 kernel, but
this did not help.  I have not tried changing the BIOS settings
for the IDE controller.

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,
