heh, I get nearly the same thing messages occasionally with my Maxtor
disk.  It is probably either the disk or my weak power supply.  The
last time I saw the message (2 nights ago) I decided to go ahead and
remove the zip drive and windows hd from my system (less load on power
supply).  Hopefully that will solve the problem.

How old is your disk?  Mine is ~ 1.5 years.  Someone else on the list
said that maxtor drives are bad and die early.  My dad has a maxtor
drive in his old 486 (Win95) and it has been there for over 2 years
without trouble.
