Well, strange things have happened.  During my transition from FC6 to
F9, I had disconnected a 3rd drive in my system, an EIDE drive.  While
it was disconnected I was experiencing the disk problems with my 2nd
drive.  So I plugged the 3rd drive back in, and now the 2nd drive is
behaving perfectly.  So it seems like this problem is due to some kind
of strangeness in the BIOS.  I have an Asus board.

Oh well.  At least it works now.
