This is like one of the problems I had on my server. The aic7xxx driver
that comes with the stock RedHat 5.2 CD is buggy. You need to get the
lastest boot floppy image and use that. Check the errata at to find out how to update the driver during the
installation. (It involves doing a 'cp' when the mouse config come up.)
