SubjectRe: Intel E1000 and IDE problems
I found something really interesting. I am now able to reproduce problems 
exactly at the same point:

If I boot the machine without ethernet cables connected before loading
the kernel the machine seems to work fine for a while. If I put for
example a crossover cable between the cards I cannot even boot the system!
right after the kernel initialization after it starts the init I get
IDE errors and then freezes because it cannot run the commands in
rc.sysinit.

I have to mention I also tried the built-in driver of intel e1000.
The 5.2.20 of course it was loaded as a module at network scripts
initialization.

So the problems trims down to how can those NICs can affect the IDE
only when they have cables connected ( even though without the driver
initialization they don't have the led link on ) even without traffic
going through them.
