I had the same errors on a Tyan K8SSA and first thought it was a
software/kernel problem with the sata controller/driver. But then one
disk suddenly died (no problems where found til the failure (smartctl))
and got replaced by a new one. The machine has been running flawless

It might be a coincidence, but just to show you you might have a
hardware problem.


 When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
