Bug#406483: After base install computer hang

Package: installation-reports
Version: etch
Severity: critical

This report is about current (see email date) floppy installation.
I make 4 installation etch diskettes. All processess after flopy boot works ok, hard drive is detected properly,
partitioning, detect network ok, getting packages from network ok, preparing filesystems
and base installs ok. When is time to reboot after base install, i do it.
After boot system properly boot kernel and initrd, and .... hang. Last kernel message is detect IDE devices
and CD drive. Then system wait for nothing. I can do alt+ctrl+del to reboot, and situation repeat again.
I tryed install, removed all proposed IDE drivers. This not solve my problem.

Installation with sarge/floppy works ok. after reboot system properly continue booting and load
processess to finalize install. After minimal floppy/net install, i can properly upgrade sarge to eth and continue
installation other packages.

With eth/floppy install I have other problems. I cant select pc-style keyboard, this process fails.
Next, I cant select lilo as bootloader. Only grub is selectable. In sarge/floppy I don't have that problems.
I allways select i686 kernel without SMP, to prevent SMP problems.

System specification:
Server Compaq ML370  (without G1,2,3 signature)
Two processors PentiumIII FSB 133MHz, first 933MHz and second 633MHz (for tests, i removed second processor)
Memory, two modules 128MB (summary 256MB) 133MHz with ECC
Compaq Smart Array 3200 Controller with useable for cache 56MB RAM (8MB uses controller firmware)
6 scsi hard drives 9GB 10k RPM, configured as one logical volume, presented to system as one physical drive
/dev/ida/c0d0  , that has standard parition table with nodes
/dev/ida/c0d0p2 etc...  this is suported by kernel module cpqarray.
network card supported by kernel module e100 .

Now I'm getting first weekly cd image of etch.
I'll try do install with this medium.
