Same cable everywhere.  Four different computers (two desktops, two
laptops; three custom-built, one an HP; and the HP is the one running
CentOS 5.3).  Fails on CentOS 4.7 desktop and CentOS 5.3 laptop. Works
on Windows XPsp3 desktop and Ubuntu 8.04 laptop.  Maxtor OneTouch
works on the CentOS 5.3 laptop (in fact, that laptop has its root
filesystem on the Maxtor USB).

So it sure looks like some specific incompatibility of this I/O Magic
drive enclosure with the EL4/EL5 USB drivers.
