Use 2.4 or rebuild the kernel. Ditto with ide-scsi, both are needed for
real world hardware. Oh and file a bug, and if it closed re-open it until
you get a working answer.
FC2T3 is still missing the ide-scsi module! And filing a bug doesn't work :-(
I've had one in bugzilla since February 28, and no reaction whatsoever from
the Red Hat kernel packagers...
Why not compile ide-scsi? Why inconvenience owners of tape drives that need it?
Put it in unsupported for all I care, but compile it, _please_.
