Problems with High Point Tech RocketRaid 1640

Recently I setup a free bsd 5.3-amd64 box with dual opterons and 1GB of ram.
I constructed a RAID 5 array using the HPT rocketraid 1640, conisiting
of 4 disks, each with 200GB capacity.
Everything worked well, until I installed and ran Samba from the ports
Now, apparently whenever I transfer with samba, the computer freezes for
a few moments, then an array comes back, stating:
Mar 24 13:14:12 tie kernel: hpt374: Device removed: controller 1 channel 3
Mar 24 13:14:12 tie kernel: hpt374: Device removed: controller 1 channel 1
The weird thing is, I transferred over 15GB of data over FTP, but the
second I used Samba (which is usually faster, which is why i switched to
it), the controller stated the two drives disconnected.
How come I can transfer 15GB one way, and nothing the other?
Now my RAID array is broken, and I lost all the data on it (which is ok,
since I have it backed up). But this is my 2nd time doing this today,
thinking maybe the first time was a fluke.
