Well i'm not sure what error 24 is, but dmraid can be really complicated.
I would recommend you write the dmraid authors from fedora, i'm sure it's a
grub vs. dmraid issue which we cannot solve.

Will do and I'll report back. If you look back over the bug report, you will see
that this seems to pop up every other kernel or so. In the past, it has always
been solved by "try the newer kernel in testing." which has worked most of the time.

We'll see what the dmraid devs have to say. This seems to only effect my jmicron
controller based box. The other boxes seem OK. So maybe it's a firware dmraid
error that gets tripped depending the way the kernel loads the dmraid module??
Who knows...
