we've got a new computer with the following hardware:

MS-5169 Motherboard, AL9 Ver: 2 (newest BIOS)
IBM DHEA 36481 (6.4 GB HD)

Now, I am having trouble getting Linux to install, because the
system hangs after a while with

hda: irq timeout: status=0x58 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }

messages if I use a 2.0.34 kernel.

Using a 2.1.111 kernel I get the message that the PCI_IDE controller is
unknown (it is correctly identified in /proc/pci as a M5229 TX Pro chipset).

Now, still the system locks up after a few minutes (even faster with the 2.1
kerbel) and tells me:

hda: lost interrupt

>From what I understand (after reading most of the messages here) is that that
chipset is not fully supported and thus the initialization is broken. The
hdparm gives me information that I believe is wrong (almost all features
set to off).

I do not get any further PCI_IDE: messages except the one about the unknown
IDE controller and that the IDE is not 100% native mode, probing irq's later.
That is all. The drives seem to be detected correctly, but the hd doesn't
work for very long.
