Subject2.4.20-pre4-ac1 trashed my system
it trashed mine also.

supermicro p4dp8-g2 mobo
2x 2.2 Xeon
e7500 chipset
wd400 40gb hd

2.4.20-pre4-ac2 + RML preempt patch (applied cleanly)

boot it and eveything runs fine for a short while, then I start getting "bad
CRC" errors and "seek failure" errors.

I have had this problem with both ext2 and ext3

initially I thought it was a bad HD, so I installed a new one on a new cable
and did a complete rh7.3 install ran for a while eith no problems then built
the same kernel over again, rebooted into the new kernel and within seconds
was having problems again.

2.4.19-rc3-ac4 +rml preempt has been dead stable, as has (so far) 2.4.29-ac4
+rml and RH 2.4.18-3 and -5

I am not doing anything funky with hd setup, not even specifying idebus=

this has happened with 40 and 80 wire cables.

if there is any additional info I can provide please let me know.
