it doesn't make sense that he can't boot from his F10 installation
directly but chainload to his FC5 installation which gives him a boot
menu that boots his F10 installation.

That almost begs to get the full copies of both /boot/grub/grub.conf and
compare them.

But in reality, if he's never successfully logged in to F10, the problem
booting with the scsi_mod kernel parameter in order to have a working
initrd on first bootup would be solved by re-installing F10 again by
booting the DVD with the kernel parameter invoked when starting the
install itself and save a whole bunch of grief.
