Fedora core 10 crashing at boot (Kernal issue)

FC10 seems to have this issue sometimes where upon bootup it hangs after:

Creating root device.
Mounting root filesystem.
mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: No such file or directory
Not sure what is happening here but I found a quick fix.
  1. Edit the grub line for FC10 being booted up
  2. Edit the kernel parameters
  3. add at the end scsi_mod.scan=sync
Should boot up just fine now.
