Hi All,

I just wanted to pass this message on that I got from Tyan yesterday. It's 
from a FAQ for the S2891 motherboard ... 

Why during the installation of SuSE 9.3 does the installation does complete
successfully, but  when you try to boot, only a black screen appears?
This is a kernel bug.  You have to boot with kernel parameter "maxcpus=1".
Then recompile to kernel version 2.6.12-rc3.
