I've had problems with that driver also.  I have a 2.4 kernel system
that's been running smoothly for several years, but I have never been
able to get the V2 Symbios driver to work with it (dual Sym53C1010/33
controller).  I haven't moved up to Fedora because of it. And yes I've
logged a bug report, but haven't seen any movement.  I don't know if 
this is a driver problem or a hardware problem that the old driver
ignored/worked around.  I tend to believe the former.
