Several months ago I had trouble getting Release 1.0.1 to work on an SGI
1200 machine. I found several references to broken firmware of the Intel
440GX motherboard and a fix telling me to boot the kernel with the
parameter 'apic'.

Now this trick doesn't seem to work with release 1.0.2a. I get lots of
scsi timeouts and can't get it to boot properly on an 1200. Does anyone
have any ideas? Is the 'apic' parameter uninplemented in this new kernel?
Am I convicted to use an older kernel?
