We have a 486DX2-S 50 Mhz, 8 MbRam, 1GB SCSI Hd with Controller
Adaptec AHA-1522 with Adaptec BIOS 1520 v.1.4 enabled. The controller
is set to default configuration: IRQ 11, address 0xDC000-0xDFFFF,
port 0x340, SCSI-ID: 7.

When we attempt to do a setup of the Linux distribution, after a while,
we get this message and the machine halts (won't even ctrlaltdel reset).

In swapper task - not syncing

We tried all the possible boot/root disks, from version 0.99
to version 1.1.59 (loaded). We have installed many other Linuxes
and never had this problem before. We have tried first with a swap
partition set and running, then with swapoff, then with no partition
at all and it won't make much of a difference. We thought it might
have something to do with the hardware but the machine runs dos 6.2
and windows 3.1 in protected mode flawlessly even for large
executables. Do you have any idea?
May UMSDOS be a possibility to try?
