SubjectRe: Dual Athlon on 2.2.19 ?
Without the patch below the boot up would hang right after it detected the ide devices.

After applying the patch it booted all the way but the keyboard would hang.

BTW I'm trying to port this patch back to the 2.2.18 TL-Kernel. Are there anymore changes I have to
look at ?
