Thank you Jeremy for your reply,

Sorry I didnt incluce my version of FreeBSD, its been so long since I
posted to the lists I forgot to tack on a complete copy of my dmesg..

pele /root 126% uname -a
FreeBSD pele 6.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE #1: Thu May 10 23:06:18 HST
2007     root at pele:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/PELE  i386

The only thing I added to the stock GENERIC kernel is atapicam.

I have been beating on both hard drives while connected to the Promise

I will load FreeBSD 6.2 and see if that solves the problem else I will
deliver it with the Promise controller. 

I will be building another one just like this soon and will test -stable
on it.

Thanks again for your help
