What I would recommend for the moment is to boot into a working kernel
and edit /sbin/mkinitrd and go to line 1411 or there about and change:
Then rebuild your initrd like this:
mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-2.6.27-3.fc10.i686.img 2.6.27-3.fc10.i686
This may not be the final solution. This is just a workaround to force
wait_for_scsi for all initrd builds. That may be suboptimal in the long
run but necessary here for now.
