[LON-CAPA-admin] FC3 Kernel Update

We've had problems. From what I could tell the drivers we need for the 
Adaptec SCSI adapter were not compiled in the kernel or available in the 
initrd, which caused the system to be unable to find its disks after 
initial kernel load. After wasting a lot of time looking for patches 
and/or a solution from Red Hat I just decided to compile and install my 
own kernel. It's not as easy as letting yum do everything for you, but 
at least now I know exactly what is in there and I can make certain my 
drivers are available, even if my hardware is not that common.

Best of luck!
