RHEL 5 and Powerpath 5.0.1

I know I've seen at least a couple of other having problems with  
this, but I have yet to see any resolutions.

We have a RHEL5 Dell 2950 connected to a Clariion cx3-80, running  
PowerPath 5.0.1 Patch b022. After installation, we are unable to  
mount any emcpower devices directly, or any emcpower devices wrapped  
in LVM, if we use the fsck option 2. It works fine with an fsck  
option of 0, and it also works if we have nothing in the fstab and  
manually mount things.

Has anyone found a resolution for this?

Here are our modprobe files.
