Mine are two Seagate disks on the IDE0 cable:

Model=ST360020A, FwRev=3.34, 60.0 GB
Model=ST340810A, FwRev=3.34, 40.0 GB

The one I catched the error message was the second, where most of Linux
resides; but if I had waited for more crashes, I could perhaps see more
messages. I have a new 160 drive, ultra ATA, not yet formatted. I hope not
to have too many problems with it.

My chipset is (lspci):

0000:00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82845 845 (Brookdale) Chipset Host Bridge (rev 03)
0000:00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge (rev 12)
0000:00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801BA IDE U100 (rev 12)

so it is not only the VIA chipset that gives problems, nor big disks. But
with the kernel:

Linux version (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 3.3.5 20050117 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux)) #1 Tue Jul 19 12:42:37 UTC 2005

I have not seen more crashes. I intend thus not to update the kernel till
I hear comments from the SuSE people - I hope they are reading this and
taking notes, because as my connection is not permanent, I don't like to
use feedback web form, I prefer email.

But it is then obvious that it is a generalized problem.
