Description of problem:
Install goes fine. No errors, no problems... Boot up the system and it does the 
boot process until this point:

hda: 58633344 sectors (30020 MB) w/1900KiB Cache, CHS=3649/255/63, UDMA
blk: queue c03ba1a0, I/O limit 4095 Mb (mask 0xffffffff)
blk: queue c03ba1a0, I/O limit 4095 Mb (mask 0xffffffff)

It then freezes. The cursor keeps blinking, but Ctrl-Alt-Delete doesn't work 
and the system will not respond. I have to restart by flippin' the power switch.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot System

Actual Results:  Boom (System freeze, must restart)

Expected Results:  Linux to boot. (Greedy, I know)

Additional info:

I boot from a boot disk as opposed to GRUB or LILO. However, when I have tried 
booting from those it did the same thing. In my current install I didn't 
install a bootloader.

i386 compatible... or more specifically a Gateway with a AMD Athlon processor, 
160 MB RAM, and two IDE Hard Drives. I have Linux installed on the second hard

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

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/
