Re: box does weird stuff

I've gotten errors like that in the past.  I'd suspect a hard drive, IDE
cable, or controller problem.

The easiest thing you can do is open the machine up, disconnect the drives
control and power cables and plug them back in.  This never seems to help
much for me, but maybe you'll be lucky to discover your cables are loose.

Typically, when I experience these errors, the hard drive is not far from
death, although once it was a controller problem (swapping the drive didn't

If you have any spare parts, try swapping and seeing where the trouble

Good Luck!

hello I'm not to experienced with debian but I try to run a
gateway/fileserver/firewall for my home network on a pentium 100.
Sometimes this machine crashes (usually due to samba) and when I reboot
I get like tons of errors like the following:
Feb 26 16:53:34 cumulus kernel: hda: read_intr: error=0x00 { }
Feb 26 16:53:34 cumulus kernel: hda: read_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady
SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
hda: read_intr: error=0x04 { DriveStatusError }
can any one tell me if this means a harddisk is about to die on me or
something else?

thanks heaps,

P.S. I hope this is not the wrong list if it is I'm really sorry to have
bothered you
