Kernel 2.0.32 (from the kernel-image deb package) fails to boot Debian
hamm system. Reboot occurs after line b:
line a hda: ST3491A, 408MB w/120kB Cache, LBA, CHS=899/15/62
line b hde: Probing with STATUS instead of ALTSTATUS
The system has only one drive and is AFAIK indicated correctly by line
Booting with kernel 2.0.30 line b looks like this:
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
After reading "/usr/doc/kernel-doc-2.0.32/Documentation/ide.txt.gz" I
have tried command line parameters at the lilo prompt including the
"last resort", linux hda=slow, as well as variations of hda= and ide0=
based on the data from the kernel 2.0.30 demsg but the system reboots
the same way with any parameters.
I don't claim to understand "ide.txt.gz". Anyhow, the data from kernel
2.0.30 demsg may give a clue to the problem: It appears that
the"0x1f0-0x1f7" in kernel 2.0.30 demsg "ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on
irq 14" may be ambiguous since the normal address for ide0 is 0x1f0
according to "ide.txt.gz".
The machine (cpu: AMD 386sx/slx-25) as reported by MSDOS MSD.COM
Computer Name: Tandy
BIOS Manufacturer: Phoenix

Everything works with kernel 2.0.30.
Is there a way to get kernel 2.0.32 to work with this system?
