Yes, but as you pointed out in a previous post, the SATA modules were not compiled into the custom kernel.

My suggestion may be a long shot but only takes a single reboot to try. It worked for me when I upgraded to FC10 and encountered the noted bug with the stock 2.6.27 kernel. In my case the initialization of my Adaptec u320 controller was delayed until after LVM attempted to access the physical drives. It sounds like Charles could be having a similar issue with Linux Raid.
