possible cciss problem on HP DL380 G3 - cannot install but does format.

Description of problem:
on my HP DL380 G3, running a clean FC5test3 install fails after the filesystems
are formatted and a few packages have been installed. Nothing seems to crash -
i can still ctrl-alt-F2 and do a 'top' or 'ps'. it looks like the install
process is blocked in the disk driver (cciss) - the disks are idle.
i have only been able to install FC5test3 (on this system) by installing FC4 and
then doing a yum upgrade. now if i let it boot with 2.6.15-1.1955-FC5smp it
will make it through to the login screen but hang (again, it's not crashed, just
blocked) shortly after that. If i use 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4smp it appears to be fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.6.15-1.1955-FC5smp
How reproducible: install FC5test3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run a clean install (i've tried nfs and CD) (also tried upgrade from FC4)
2. all default options (i've also tried disabling ACPI and selinux and LVM)
install blocks during packages install
this works in FC5 release.
by the way, can confirm that PXE/NFS/VNC install works okay.
