I have tried the 2.6.6 kernel and tried just compiling the fd core kernel.
Each time it just sits there forever (let sit for almost 3 hours) on probing for new hardware.
If i boot the default smp kernel everything boots fine.
My hardware is as follows:
Intel Pentium 4 2.8c
2x512mb hyperx ram
Ati radeon 9800xt
Anyone have any ideas why this is happening?
