Since I upgraded my system from a 486DX2-66 to a P5/120 (x2) with an
ASUS P55T2P4D motherboard, I've been getting these messages. As far as I
can tell, they only occur when the system is idle - never under any
significant load on the disk/controller.

I believe that this may simply be a timing problem intrduced with the
pentium - as part if the upgrade I ran the board with a single processor
and with the caches disabled - during that time, I don't believe I ever
saw these messages.

Can anyone shed some light on this...
