it sounds like the initrd is broken.  Please make sure your mkinitrd package is
up to date, and then run mkinitd /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.35_fc3.img 2.6.11-1.35_fc3
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 14:43:42 EDT
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'.

Thank you.
