I don't think the a core dump is related to the HD and SCSI card.

According an older copy of the Linux Bible, a core dump is when a program
crashes and is used to determine what caused the program to crash.

I keep getting random coredumps on my one machine trying to use emacs. I
guess I should take a closer look at the problem.

I would suggest that there was a problem with the new kernel that is
causing the problem.

What I would like to know is how to read the core file left to determine
the problem that caused the dump.
