The RC2 installer with the 2.6.18 kernel does
NOT fix this bug.

I tried it today on two different PCs (same hardware).

The motherboard is an Intel AL440LX PII-233 with a
PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0.

During post the CD drive is detected by the BIOS
as an FX240S.

The last couple lines on the screen are as follows:

EIP: [] ide_execute_command+0x16/0x73 [ide_core] SS:ESP 0068:c030fe94
<0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt
