Bug#394608: linux-image-2.6-686: the system halts on boot with 2.6.17 - 686 only

Package: linux-image-2.6-686
Version: 2.6.17
Severity: important

the system halts during boot, most often during attempt to detect
unexistent /dev/hdb.
in the rare cases the boot process passes this hop, it finally hangs
when hald is been actived.
this happens only with the 2.6.17 kernel, in the 686 flavour. 486 works ok.

Shell:  /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash
