Loader hang

Hi *,
I recently installed 6.2 on a Supermicro P8SCT and I found that the loader 
would hang after a few seconds unless I disabled the Adaptec 29160's BIOS.

It also has a 3ware 8006-2LP (which I am booting off). The SCSI card only has 
a tape drive on it though so I'm surprised it would install a BIOS at all 
(after probing)

Interestingly the hang only occurred when booting the installed version - when 
booting from the CD it worked perfectly..

Anyone seen anything similar? Any suggestions for debugging? :)
