SubjectRe: Intel E1000 and IDE problems
One more thing to add:

After a few of those kind of freezes the BIOS won't even recognize the
Harddisk anymore, I had to turn on the machine without the harddisk in it
then I forced the bios to update ESCD and the put back the harddrive in it
and worked. Somehow those cards affect the system anyway. ( even only in
CMOS setup )
