SubjectRe: Problems with large ext2 fs in 2.0
I had some similar experience with my newly installed 
1.7G harddisk (as hdb), It keeps giving me corrupted files, especially
when I am dealing with large file (>3 MB).

I tested my drive under DOS and ran Norton Disk Diag on it
but it reported no problem at all.

I am using 1.3.93 Linux and I am starting to suspect that it is a kernel
related problem.

I gather from someone that there are some controller bugs that may
exhibit such symptom when using hda and hdb together.

Still desparately looking for a solution..............
