Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone out there has got Centos 4 installed on a Tyan
S2895 (that's a Thunder K8WE) motherboard on sata disks? I know about 
the forcedeth bug, but I'm getting installation hangs at random spots in
the install, even off CD, in what seem to be nv_sata timeout problems. 
SuSE 10 is rock solid on the same box, so I don't think it's hardware,
and I've tried two different sets of disks to rule out disk problems.
Latest bios updates - tried both 1.02 and 1.03.

Any success stories out there?
