When the Centos 4.0 starts it installing after few minutes errors will start
coming up

hdc:   IRQ Probe failed (Oxfcfa)
hdd:   IRQ Probe failed (Oxfcfa)
hdc: lost interrupt.

There is no problem with the cds as on the other machines I am able to
install those cds but on this particular machine things are failing.

I am reconfigure or system-config-display but I am should be able to reach
that stage where I can issue this command If I am not able to install the OS
how can I issue this command.

I tried Suse 10.0 it got installed but when the KDE comes it shows an error
"Frequency out of range". Suse 10.0 works fine If I boot into the init level
3 but not in init level 5.

But Centos and FC4 are not reaching that stage that I can boot to init level
3 they are failing within few minutes of installation process.

Thanks & Regards
