I had similar problems on my son's machine with 11.2/x86. It's an
AthlonXP 3200+. I'll have to check the motherboard(Abit something).
When I used the onboard IDE controller, the DMA mode would finally
drop back to UDMA/33. I was using an 80GB that was fine and tested
several times in other machines. I did get some corruption. However,
I pulled the drive and used the onboard SATA controller which seemed
to be ok. However, I don't have the machine handy ATM. I figured it
was a bug in the chipset, but couldn't find a way to fix it.

I guess I'll install 11.0 on it and see what happens. Probably won't
have time to mess with it before the weekend(if then - moving and his
machine is packed up)....

Wish I had done more troubleshooting now.. Oh well.
