Yeah, prepare for that drive to completely melt down soon, so you aren't
taken by surprise if it actually does.

I had a system with a chipset fan that would die intermittently,
allowing the chipset to overheat.  By the time I figured out what was
happening and got the fan replaced, the chipset had been damaged.  I got
DMA errors (like yours) a lot on the second IDE controller.  Other than
that, I didn't have any problems.

I would suggest also doing some tests (memtest86) and disabling DMA on
that drive.

Also, perhaps a bad cable could cause that...?  Unlikely I suppose.
