Description of problem: 
Cannot install RH Linux 7.3 from floppy, or boot Kernel 2.4.18-27.7.x, on a 
Dell PowerEdge SP5133-2 with Hard Drives on an Adaptec AHA-2740 EISA SCSI Host 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Will not work with RH 7.3 Boot floppy or RH 7.1 with kernel update (2.4.18-
27.7.x)  System will boot with Linuc bak (2.4.2-2) from 7.1 installation.

How reproducible:

2.  Load driver disk
3.  Embedded NCR 53c810 SCSI with CD-ROM is detected
4.  Does not detect Adaptec controller.  Will not
Actual results:
System hangs during boot or keeps asking for device with harddrives during 

Expected results:
Detects AHA-2740 and loads driver.

Additional info:
I have already tried the aic7xxx_old driver, in new kernel, does not help.
Sounds similar to other aic7xxx issues, but none of their solutions appear to 
resolve problem.

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,
