vlb controler and ide, had simular problems by it cannot reset IDE and
something about not getting a interupt from that HD, it however stated
that it got an interrupt from the other drive(the master) only a reset
fixed it, I though it was just mee since I have been having problems with
my other hd (the one that did not barf) .
