Part of the problem is due to a bug in my BadRAM patch though I am unable to find it. :-(

Any chance any of the oopses pointed to anything w.r.t. the BadRAM patch?

I am now running with CONFIG_PREEMT=n and without BadRAM. I don't trust my Promise IDE controller, it might also be causing problems, I am getting IDE errors off of it with the Barracuda's. I have ordered a new one, which should arrive in the morning (Friday). I will let you know how it goes...
