[Bug 290153] Re: Fails to find boot device in Intel D945Gnt

rootdelay=90 has remedied my "Gave up waiting for root device" error.
This is on a different motherboard than D45gnt and with a SCSI interface
- not SATA.

The 8.10 server install is on a Rackable Systems Phantom4 4.0 system
that uses an Intel SE7501WV2 motherboard with dual Zeons and 4 SCSI
drives configured in a 2xRAID 1 mirror.  A floppy is not installed
though I have a CD reader on an AT interface that I used for loading the
distro.  The motherboard has an Adaptec AIC-7902W SCSI controller.

I threw "all_generic_ide floppy_off irqpoll" at grub without success.

Thanks so much to everyone who has reported the issue and possible work-
