Well lets see. I actually use what is called Rawhide. Have for years. But
I installed all of the tests for Fedora 7 as well as the Released Fedora 7
on a separate partition. I have SATA drives, two WDC 250s, and I had
absolutely no problems as you do.
And the bug was closed by the person that opened it.

Flame? Why would you think that I do that?
Since the links that you used were for the 32 bit test3 and your problem
is with the 64bit of Fedora 7 may I suggest that you file a Bugzilla for this?
