Post laptop with docking -- does not boot new kernel, redhat 9 installation media

Hi there,

I have a Compaq Armada 7800 laptop installed with redhat 8.0.
Whenever I try installing redhat 9 or try upgrading to a newer
kernel version 2.4.20-18 the thing just stops booting with following
last message on console:
blk: queue c03a5260, I/O limit 4095Mb (mask 0xffffffff)
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
The strange thing is that when the laptop is undocked the system
boots just fine!??!
Does anyone know why there is such a behaviour and how to solve it ?
It seems like an irq conflict ... but does the docking station have
irq's ? And if it does how can we alter them ?
I definitely need the docking station since i don't have a network
card on board without it !

Best regards,
