I have got quite interesting problem with Fedora Linux. When I installed
the Fedora Core 1 on 2-Xeon-processor machine with ServerWorks Grand
Champion SL chipset, everything was Ok. But when I tried to install the
Fedora Core 2, I received the "Unsupported ServerWorks chipset" message.
The vendor of motherboard (Tiger GC-SL S2727) is TYAN Computer
Corporation and I didn't find the proper support of this chipset for
Linux. Now, I would like to know if this chipset is being supported in
Fedora Core release 1.92 or Fedora Core release 2.90.
Thanks in advance.

I have FC2 running on a Adaptec SCSI 19160 connected to a SCSI HD. I
found that updating the Adaptec SCSI bios/firmware on the card helped.
Also In the PC bios I set the primary chain detection to SCSI instead of
the default IDE. I also updated the PC bios to the latest firmware.
Hope this helps
