disk problems

Ok, I've run out of places to look.  I'm getting occasional "hda:timeout"
messages and my system is locking up with a disk error after anywhere from
a few hours to a couple of days.  When it locks up, I can still change
virtual consoles, but I can't run anything and ctrl-alt-del doesn't work.
Since I hope to leave this system running unattended in Austin, crashes are
a very bad thing.  Help???

My system config:
        Old 40MHz 386
        8 meg RAM - (8) 1 meg 30-pin SIMMS
        old I/O controller with large DTC 2280 chip.
        (2) Quantum 6.4 Gb bigfoot drives
        EGA card
