Or use VIA VT8235 and a USB2.0 ASUS CD-RW to install RH8.0, it also install 
completely.

Can you switch to VC4 (cntl-alt-f4) when it hangs?

If so could you tell us what the last 10 lines say?

Comment 3 Joseph 2003-01-21 10:42:22 UTC
Is there no solution for this issue?

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-23 16:01:25 UTC
So the USB controller is the only difference between successful and unsuccessful
8.0 installs?

Comment 5 Joseph 2003-01-27 01:27:58 UTC
Yes, it failed with VIA VT6202 (PCI card), but succeed with onboard VT8235.
Other H/W configurations are the same.

Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-30 21:26:27 UTC
Perhaps this is a know kernel issue.

Comment 7 Pete Zaitcev 2003-08-01 18:15:22 UTC
Does this still fail for RHL 9? The ehci-hcd was introduced in RHL 8,
that's probably what is failing.
