Description of problem:
I did an upgrade of a working fc3 on a Dell PowerEdge 2850. On reboot, the machine hung while looking
at the caching of hda, which is configured as a hardware RAID 5. Thinking that the upgrade was faulty
and that there was no important data on the machine, I did a fresh install. After a clean format and install,
the problem persisted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OS
Actual Results: The machine hung.
Expected Results: Something useful :-)
can you get the exact messages it hangs at ?
The last few lines of IDE messages are useful for debugging this.
There were also a whole bunch of IDE fixes after test3, so it could be that this
got fixed for the final release already.
Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.

Mass update to all FC4 bugs:
An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel (126.96.36.199). As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.
Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.
