User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030313

Description of problem:
i have kernel-2.4.20-18.9 for i686 installed, and it hangs just before starting
x with hdb=ide-scsi on the command line.  with hdb=ide-scsi removed, it boots
normally.  2.4.20-9 works fine.  2.4.20-13.9 also had this problem, i think.

My hardware is:  inspiron 8200 1.7ghz geforce4 440 64MB 24x cd-rw / 8x dvd combo
drive.  i've tried both the Nvidia proprietary drivers and the 4.3 nv driver,
and the hang is unaffected by the video driver.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with ide-scsi=hdb on the command line
2. note the hang before starting x
3. reboot, remove ide-scsi=hdb from command line
4. note that boot completes normally

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,
