Hey people...I'm back to the list. Just settling in my new job for a B2B and getting to work with OSes ranging from BSDs to Sllaris to Linux to NT (can't avoid it). Anyway, the error displayed look very similar to the ones I had some time back and I managed to tarce it to the dma setting I had enabled via the boot scripts

I;d suggest you do a hdparm /dev/hda and see whether you have dma enabled, if so disable it and reboot...
Now that I am using mutt and am too lazy to RTFM, could  someone let me know how to wrap my mail so that it doesn't go over the sides thx.
