    SubjectLarge Storage Devices in Linux.....Kernel level support.....
    hi all,

    i've got a setup of 2 hard drives (30GB & 40GB) with an Asus a7m266 mobo
    with a VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586 IDE [Apollo] (rev 06).

    30GB= fujitsu, 40GB= IBM (both are 7200rpm

    i've got my cdrw on /dev/hdc, 30GB=/dev/hda, and 40GB=/dev/hdb...

    all works alright for a while, but when i keep my computer turned on for
    a couple of days and then reboot. bios sometimes tells me that smart
    array (or something) failed with my primary master (30GB) and i should
    back-up soon.. next reboot it tells me that pri-master fails.. it's
    doing this quite regularly and i don't know how to stop it. i'm running
    kernel 2.4.12 vanilla.

    i'm sorry guys if this is the wrong place to ask but i could use some
    hints in probably adding some options to the kernel at compile(config)
    time to aid my ailing box.
