Hey Justin,
the error I receive is:

   no DRQ after issuing WRITE
   ide0 reset: success

And after a few minutes to a few hours or when the system is under higher load. 
(copying large files is enough) I get that error.
My kernel where all i386 kernels, currently I try a 2.4.26 kernel epcially for 
the crusoe processor. It might be so that the frequency (longrun system) is not 
set correctly so I'll try that first.....
