Ultra DMA woes

  I just got in my new work desktop machine and am having problems
installing RH6.0. This machine has 13gb IBM ultra DMA 66 disk hooked up to
a Promise Technologies ultra66 card. I've tried following the instructions
in the Ultra-DMA-miniHOWTO, and this seems to work to a point. At least
passing the addresses of the disk to the kernel makes the disk visible to
disk druid which can then do it's partition stuff. However I consistently
get a "signal 11" error when the installer gets on to the step of setting
up the swap space.

  I've looked around, but wasn't able to find a distribution that supports
this for installation. Am I missing something? Perhaps I should just not
use the card until there is support. The Promise Technolgies web site says
that there will be RedHat support Real Soon Now.
