I was wondering if this was related to the problem or is something
completely different:

I know FC2 has the same issues noted in the SuSE link above. I have
several FC2 related links on the same problem I can provide if it is
helpful. I have yet to see (I may have missed it) where this 2.6.x
kernel dual boot issue has been resolved. If it has and I'm mistaken, or
if this issue is different, my apologies for the noise.
