As I noted, I tried that. The new kernel cause fsck to
fail with a disturbing regularity.
I think the problem may've been deeper, tho. I eventually
gave up on that disk drive. Tho, strangely, the 2.0_RC4
kernel never saw these problems. I'm not sure why that
I'm trying to rebuild with a new disk now, and other than
seeming dog slow, it's working alright. I may have to make
sure the SCSI bus negotiations turned out as I expected for
the new device(s).
