Unhappy Redhat 9 install hung up at kernel boot up(usb probe failure)

I'm trying to install RH9 but it just hung up at kernel boot up phase(just loaded vmlinuz and initrd and during the boot up it hung up) when probing my usb device(six usb 2.0 ports, GIGAByte PE667 PRO, 845PE chipset).

But when I installed RH8 before, it was no problem to probe the usb, so i guess there must be a bug in the kernel of RH9 install CD.

And further test just proved that I'm right.

I first installed RH8 and then manually compiled the latest 2.4.21rc3 kernel and got no problem to boot up my machine.

So naturally i'd like to update the new kernel to the RH9 install CD and succeeded doing that. Now the 2.4.21rc3 install CD boot up normally but saying that it can not find the Redhat install CD just as one of the previous thread mentioned.

So my question is by what means the installation manager(aconda??) detects the right cd? by kernel number, date or CD checksum? How to make the installation manager believe that the 2.4.21rc3 cd is a valid install cd?

OR is there some other way to update the kernel used to boot up original Redhat 9 installation?

OR (^_^) some other way to solve the usb problem?
