The external cache disable is also required on certain hardware
for installation of OS/2.  I would assume the systems where this
problem exists
under LInux are the same ones affected by the same problem under OS/2.

One thing to check, is to make sure you don't have a buggy AMI BIOS. 
sure your BIOS date is at least April, 1993.  If not, contact AMI, and
you can
order an upgrade for about $20 USD.
