I'm having a problem installing RedHat 4.2 on my brand new

start the install it starts to do a PCI probe and comes up with
the following error - "Unknown PCI device 1039:5600" and "Unknown
PCI device 1039:9". It suggests reading PCI.H, but this doesn't
give me any immediately usefull information like how to turn off
the probe (or even if that is an option).
pci.h is a list of all pci vendor and device id's known to linux. if
the pci initialisation code doesn't recognise an id, it prints a
warning. what it means is that your kernel is old.
looking at pci.h for 2.2.6:
#define PCI_VENDOR_ID_SI 0x1039
#define PCI_DEVICE_ID_SI_ACPI 0x0009
so it's your probably your chipset. you've probably got a motherboard
with a SiS 5600 chipset.
update your kernel, or better still your distribution, RH4.2 is quite
old and based on libc5.
