This sounds like a kernel issue.
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2002-08-02 12:52:51 EDT

Comment 3 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:39:48 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
