unexpected IRQ trap at vector a0
irq 160, desc: c0396e00, depth: 1, count: 0, unhandled: 0

And, as if this wasn't enough, my ethernet card isn't recognized.
Does anyone have any hint about how to get past this. I have a few
development machines in our university waiting to be installed because

Thanks for your time,

P.S.: Never the less I would like to congratulate the openSUSE team
for this great distro. Excelent job on this release.

kernel-default-2.6.20_rc6-25.1.i586.rpm from
The irqpoll boot option is still needed.

If anyone could give a hint to solve this withou the boot option it
would be appreciated.
