Spurios hard drive problems

I have spurios hangs of one of my systems, running 9.1, stock + YOU updates.
When the system hangs, it hangs dead hard and a reset-button reboot is the
only way out.
The system itself resides on a Compaq disk array, and there's an IDE disk
that's used for storing VM-data for VMware GSX. Often the system hangs when
I'm having system load on the VMware virtual machines, so I guess it's
related to the IDE disk.
I see in my /var/log/messages lots of these:

Feb 14 11:18:18 ragata kernel: hda: drive_cmd: status=0x51 { DriveReady
SeekComplete Error }
Feb 14 11:18:18 ragata kernel: hda: drive_cmd: error=0x04 { DriveStatusError
Feb 14 11:18:18 ragata kernel: ide: failed opcode was: 0xef

The IDE disk is a Western Digital WD1000BB-50CCB0, system chipset is VIA

Ideas please?
