This happens to me last week on two computers with fc4 installed on.
Both systems have a aha-2940 scsi card on board. Don't know if this is
a problem of the kernel (2.6.15-1.1833_FC4) or of the aic7xxx-module.
On rebooting the systems I got the error 'mkrootdev: label / not found'
and I had to reinstall the complete system.

By the way, all harddisks (ide) are ok, I have tested them with several
tools. So my trust in fedora is a little bit distressed.
