I had this happen on my server.
Problem I had was related to RAID-5 controllers which were disabled 
after heavy activity.
I'm running a MSI 694D board with two PIII-800 processors.

The fix was to force the IRQ selection off from Fedora with a Grub boot 
Don't know if it helps but this what is working for me.
This is placed to the grub.conf after the kernel string
