Sounds a lot like:

Is the serial ata drive by any chance a Seagate?  If so, you may want to try
this kernel:
http://www.wtamu.edu/~mlauterbach/kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3_SATA.root.i686.rpm

All that is changed in this kernel is a line or two commented out.  I have
yet to get around to making and verifying that this will fix the x86_64
version of FC3 yet.  x86_64 and i386 versions of FC3 both behaved exactly
the same for me.
