    Subject!!Warning!! UDMA and Fujitsu HD
    Hi

    I am having problems with a hard disk Fujitsu MPB3064AT UDMA and the
    kernel 2.0.34 (Red Hat 5.1 and Slackwere 3.5).

    Under this kernel, fdisk does not work correctly, if you have already
    the partitions you can format it (mke2fs), but if you check it
    afterwards
    (e2fsck -f) it appears corrupted inmediately. If you try to copy
    something
    in there ... corrupted.

    It seems that the new support included for UDMA in 2.0.34 is not
    compatible with this Fujitsu. I installed this distributions using an
    older
    kernel (2.0.31) and they worked ok.

    This happens also with hdparm, if you try to make it full UDMA, it
    inmediately gets corrupted and you loose everything.

    In the list of RedHat 5.1 I could find two more with exactly the same
    problem, one with the same Hard Disk but the other with a different one.

    I hope this helps

    Cheers
