I doubt that this helps fixing your problem, but I would like to
mention that I noticed a problem that seems to appear frequently, when
you have either Triton or Triton II based boards. As soon as the EIDE
bus gets longer than about 12", there are bound to be data
corruptions. So keep the flat-ribbon cable shorter than 12";
preferably, keep it shorter than 8". Alternatively, do not use EIDE at
all :-)

BTW, this problem is not specific to Linux. I noticed it with a Triton
I based computer that run Linux and a Triton II based computer that
usually runs W95.
