I don't know how Fedora Core 7 handles this in the initrd. Old RHEL
systems (prior to RHEL5.1) have nash commands to construct hard coded
multipath devices. You probably supply the name as part those commands.
If Fedora Core 7 uses something similar to RHEL5.2, then you could
probably use aliases in the multipath.conf file and rebuild initrd???
