Ok this is the new Radeon IGP chipset. We have known problems with this that can
be worked around and are fixed upstream.  If you boot with "nopcmcia" you should
be ok although you may need "nousb" as well.

There is an excellent mailing list about these systems at
http://videl.ics.hawaii.edu/pipermail/linuxpresario900/

Also see

http://www.cas.mcmaster.ca/%7Epavlidmh/Linux_on_a_Presario_900.html

for a very good web site on the subject. 

We hope to have the next Red Hat cleanly installing on the Radeon IGP in a
future release.

I observerd exactly the same behavior on a DELL latitude C840 under
9.0 2.4.20-18.9 - it appeared probably related to a kernel update and could be 
resolved by reinstallation of the kernel-pcmcia-cs rpm.

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, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
