SB600 ATI controller, USB TakeOver failed



Hi list,
I have the unfortunate luck of wanting to install Linux on a Dell optiplex 320. This machine seems to be as anti-linux as they come! Problems faced:
1- Sata disk not recognized
WorkAround: pass pci=nomsi, or all-generic-ide (depending on newer/older kernel version)
2- Grub does not boot!!
WorkAround: Use lilo
3- Machine doesn't have PS2, only USB keyboard/mouse. USB does not work, the following errors are generated

ohci_hcd 0000:00:13.2: OHCI Host Controller
ohci_hcd 0000:00:13.2: USB HC TakeOver failed!
ohci_hcd 0000:00:13.2: can't reset
ohci_hcd 0000:00:13.2: init 0000:00:13.2 fail, -1
ohci_hcd: probe of 0000:00:13.2 failed with error -1

I need to install RHEL4 (much better), or an older Fedora (4?). This is because of the CAD software that will run on this machine. I have not found any work-arounds for such problem (only one that uses ohci-hcd parameter no_handshake, which is not understood by 2.6.9 kernel). If anyone is aware of any un-official kernel patch that solves that issue, kindly let me know.

regards
