Got the same. Saw something on the errorlog console and did simply

hdparm -d0 /dev/hdX to disable ide-dma

if this work you've to edit /etc/rc.config and set ide_dma to "no".

You can set down the network-adapter speed by parameters in /etc/modules.conf too


options 8139too media 3 - set's up 10MBit Network (need re-boot/init)

...and yes - its not security related
