I received an error at bootup with pre2.0.1-pre2.0.4.
ie: unexpected_intr: status=0x51 {Drive SeekComplete Error}
unexpected_intr: error=0x04 {Drive Status Error}

This Is a promise 2300+ with two Maxtors (1.6gig/540M) on the
first vlb channel. The error is reading the second (isa) channel.
It has a 270 meg (Maxtor) attached. I can still read from this drive
but It hard reboots without running shutdown if I try to read from
cdrom with teac interface card or write back to 1st ide channel. This
drive still works perfectly with 1.3.94-1.3.100 kernels that I have
on another partition. I have encountered this error after booting
from both channels when it trys to read the 270 meg hd.
