hdc: interrupt lost in RHEL 4 WS installation


Am unable to install redhat enterprise linux 4(WS) in my Compaq Presario 1720IL desktop. The error messages are:
hdc:IRQ probe failed
hdc: ATAPI DVD-ROM CD-R/RW
0x01fc
hdc:lost interrupt
hdc:lost interrupt
....(goes on)

But rhel 3 is easily installed along with other previous versions of redhat.

Smile work around

Have finally worked around the issue.
Since RHEL3 was able to successfully install itself on my machine, i dumped the .iso images of the installation cds (RHEL4) on a FAT32 partition. Then i changed the BIOS settings to suppress all error messages and ran the RHEL4 install again. Only this time, i chose askmethod instead of default install. The rest was automatic: direct anaconda towards the directory containing the .iso images and that's all.
