    I am seeing similar errors on my home system. The interesting thing is that
    these errors started occuring only with the development line of kernels.

    I would like to be able to track this problem down further. Is there a way to
    force the kernel to display what type of chipset and mode it is using for the
    hard drive controller? I usually use the defaults for the kernel. (I need to
    get the specs on the motherboard for the exact chipset. It is fairly new for a
    Pentium motherboard. The bios is from within the last 3 or so months.)
