Are you using DMA?

I'm not sure about what these mean. A lot of similar reports (error
status=0x58) can be found on the list for a variety of different
controllers. On 2.6 too.

What is the meaning of this error? By reading the archives, it seems it
can be caused by several different problems (bad cables for example). Is
that right?

What do they mean?

Can you please save and post the 2.6.3 panic?

Haven't got a clue about these "status=0x51" and "error=0x04". Anyone?
