I passed this issue over to Adaptec, I suspect either bad hardware/firmware
personally, since I've had several reports of successful 7.2 installs with the
2100S cards. It may also be a driver/motherboard interaction issue.

Chris, you might want to try moving it to a different PCI slot.
Comment 4 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:39:49 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/
