Hard disk errors with 2.0.x kernels

I'm using kernel 2.0.7 and I've got the following error:

hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hda: dma_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }, LBAsect=2342359,

The drive is a 1.5 gig Maxtor and the motherboard has the Intel Triton

Previously, I got a same or similar error along with a complete crash of
the system. We've been running Linux for a couple years without ever
having this problem. So, I figure either my hard drive is going bad, or
there is some bug with the latest kernels. Have other people been seeing
this error with 2.0.x kernels? Any opinions on which is the problem are
