Yeah, I think Richard may be right. Anyway, the drive sort of reads
from the raw partition. It gets a IDE reset and then it reads. I can
read it a second time with no reset. Haven't tried a reboot between
reads, hang on, yeah, a reboot brings the errors back.

But, fscking the dd-ed image gets me less errors so I'm trying that
route to get the data back.
