SubjectRe: 2.2/2.4 on MSI 694D Pro-AIR (MS-6321)

I've got an MSI 694D Pro AI mainboard (ie non-raid), and both 2.2.x
and 2.4.0 work flawlessly here. I did manage to build a 2.4.0 kernel
which didn't boot, but it got much further before it hung. I didn't
try to find out why, just changed some settings (removing APM/ACPI,
iirc), so I'm not sure why.

My board doesn't have RAID, but it has a Promise PDC20627
ATA/100-controller, which is properly detected (although I haven't
tried to run it at UDMA 100-speeds, I can't see why it shouldn't as
long as the controller is supported) Currently there are no disks on
the promise controller, but I've tried that, and I know it works.

Here is my output from 2.4.0, SMP, same section:

Unless it's either the RAID that's causing you problems, or the maxtor
drives, I don't know what could cause this. I'm not sure which
BIOS-version is on my card, but I haven't touched it.
