Alpha PWS 433au (MiataGL) halts when booting installation CD, with "halt code = 5"

This problem has been reported by others numerous times over the last  
couple years; this is just a reminder that it still exists in 6.2R.   
It would be great if somebody could address the issue.

This system has no PCI cards installed and no SCSI devices  
installed.  The HDD is on IDE0 and the CDROM is on IDE1.

I'm guessing the issue described in the following post may be the  
cause of the problem? 

The thing is, the QLogic SCSI controller is built-in on this system,  
so there's no way to put it in front of the PCI-PCI bridge.  Is there  
any way to disable it, or disable the device driver, as a work-around?


Console output:

[Note that there is a delay of several seconds between the output of  
"isp0: [GIANT-LOCKED]" and "halted CPU 0".]
