Ok, this one has driven me to distraction, but apparently there is an 
issue with Adaptec i2o

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=189570 , for the 
end of this

"This fix will be present in 2.6.17. Is there any chance of anyone backporting it
into 2.6.16 before Fedora goes 2.6.17?"

For the present, a possible work around is to use pci=routeirq .  
Haven't tested this yet, will try to get back over to the school (late) 
tonight and do so.  At any rate, my luck with the IT gods is continuing 
to hold true to form :)
