Same bug with Adaptec 2940UW

I have installed RedHat 7.0 with these devices

Intel VC820 Motherboard with BIOS VC82010A.86A.0036.P16SCSI Adapter
Adaptec 2940U/UW (BIOS 2.57.2) (SCSI ID 7)
    at Bus:02h Device:09h / IRQ: 9 / IO Port: D800h
  Western Digital Vantage 9.1Gb U2W SCSI (SCSI ID 0)
  Saegate 4.5Gb UW SCSI (SCSI ID 1)

  UltraPlextor CD-ROM (SCSI ID 2)
  Yamaha 4260 CD ReWriter (SCSI ID 5)
  Iomega ZIP SCSI (SCSI ID 6)
Video Diamond Viper 770 OEM 16MB
Sound onboard
Network 3Com 3C509B

When I connect only UltraWide hard disks, the system works fine. But if I add 
UltraPlextor, Yamaha, Iomega (All connected with 58 pin cable), the system 
stops for 5 seconds every 2 minutes or less.

So I had to install & use linux without those devices using 58 pin cable.
The Windows 98 SE works good with & without those 58 pin devices mentioned 

I mailed to dledford@redhat.com for several times, but he doesn't even answer!!!
