I boot with linux26. Boot works from IDE CD, kernel module for Adaptec
SCSI is chosen. Hard disk is SCSI. But installer fails to find the
SCSI drive. I installed this same machine with RC1, then it worked.

When I had USB memory plugged in, that was the only disk the
partitioner offered for installing to. I removed all USB-stuff. Then
installer complained it did not find any disk to install into.

Next I tried removing all IDE Chipset Drivers. Same result, installer
can not find any hard disk.

Next I removed the CD and tried booting from the SCSI hard to make
sure it has not disappeared. Boot works, and I got the lscpi info.

So I failed to install this machine with pre-RC2. 

I also saw the known error of red background. The installer screen
background was sometimes red. Seemed random, most of the times it was
blue but I did get red twice. Even when it was red, some screens
showed blue bagkground, but the next screen was again red.

No logs, install did not proceed that far.
