An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.
If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.
if this is still occuring with the current errata kernel, I suggest bringing it
up on email@example.com
The problem with the older scsi drivers is that their not as well maintained,
and when they fall into disrepair, finding people with the hardware, and the
knowledge to fix them becomes more difficult over time.
