Bug#406621: etch/install i386 hang after first reboot on Compaq ML370 with PIII proc

Package: installation-reports
Severity: critical

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [O]

About Load installer modules, on floppy install is error when I select
PC keyboard. On CD install it's ok.

About install boot loader, select lilo generate error. Select grub works

About Reboot, only kernel is booting. It detect and load all needed
modules for network, hard disk controller (hardware array)
and IDE cdrom. Properly display maked partitions, and hang.
No shell is available. I can only alt+ctrl+del to repeat reboot.

About install. It's etch installer. I tryed floppy install and binary-1
bootable CD install.
Result is the same. I selected allways kernel i686 without SMP. Once I
selected i686-SMP, but result is the same.

Hardware config:

Server: Compaq ML370 without suffix G1,2,3 or 4

Memory: two modules 128MB/133MHz ECC. memtest86 does not report any
errors (tested for 4 days non-stop)

Processors: first PIII 966MHz/133MHz, second PIII 667MHz/133MHz (to
prevent problems, i decided to remove second processor)

Network: intel, supported by e100 kernel module. Works ok with DHCP and
Static sets, I can install floppy boot with net install.

Disc controller:
For CDROM, IDE "ServerWorks" with 2 channels paralell ata

For hard drives, Compaq Smart Array 3200 with 64MB RAM, useable for
cache 56MB RAM, connected 6 disks SCSI hot pluggable 9.1GB 10kRPM,
configured as one logical volume presented as physical device
/dev/ida/c0d0 by kernel module cpqarray  .

I notice, bootable binary-1 debian/sarge works ok. network upgrade
from fresh sarge install to eth works ok. I'll try boot installer
with debug flag, and try lspci bot now I don't have this data.
