Speaking of buggy firmware's, does anyone know of any problems with IBM's
new 3.2Gb DAQA(?) drives, specifically when running under DMA transfers?
I'm getting DMA irq timeouts, and am intrigued to know whether I should
replace my new motherboard or my new drive.

Is there a good list anywhere of known buggy drives?
