 >wd1: soft error (corrected)

Not sure about this one.... Maybe Andy has some ideas? Perhaps this is just 
due to the driver adjusting the DMA.. As said, the 40 pin cable seems to 
cure all the messages, but probably isn't the right way to do it - works 
for me though.. A hardware frig is easier than mucking about with the 
drivers I think...

My Qube has been running with no problems for about 6 months now, the disks 
take a severe hammering as it is my main server these days. I did need a 
quick re-install a few weeks ago, but I think I broke something ;-) Maybe I 
should leave it alone!

I'll be interested to hear if anyone else comes up with some ideas about 
this..... to be honest, I'm not much of a guru and kernel/driver hacking is 
a bit beyond me.

Kind Regards,
