Dell PowerEdge SP5133-2 with Hard Drives on an Adaptec AHA-2740 EISA SCSI Host

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
