You are right on target. I'm still running 10.0.

To me this really looks like a old hal version that doesn't detect
this right.
rpm -q hwinfo hal
hwinfo-11.25-2
hal-0.5.4-6.4
Yes, then this will mostprobably be fixed also for your drive
(besides a lot of other things) when you update/install 10.2.
That would be an 'if' not a 'when' ;-)
I'm quite happy with 10.0, never caused me much trouble. I don't mind skipping a few releases, as long as I can keep my desktop applications somewhat up to date through packman/suser repos.
I think the next for me will be 10.3.
If you're familiar with compiling and building rpms you could
of course also try to patch your hal with the patch from Danny (http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/hal/2006-May/005151.html)
for this problem.
Sure, if it bothered me enough ;-)
Have fun,
Frank
