Use the new 2.2.19 kernel package.  I'm not exactly sure where it can be
found at but search the list archives, it's was announced less than a
month ago if I recall properly.  The 2.2.10 kernel has SCSI reselect
issues (i.e. you can't reliably use more than 1 SCSI device).  Michael
Schmitz helped me fix this somewhere around 2.2.17 if I recall properly.
