well, it won't do you any good since you are not getting past grub

at this point, I would probably...

boot the Install DVD, put the kernel argument into the boot command...

linux install scsi_mod.scan=sync

and then re-install Fedora 10 by removing /dev/sda1 and perhaps
making /dev/sda1 about 200 megabytes for just /boot and then /dev/sda4
for /

At least if you boot the DVD with the scsi_mod.scan=sync kernel
parameter, when it installs the kernel and builds your initrd, it will
build it with that parameter already.
