Errors correlated with extensive disk activity often point to a power
supply problem. This is especially the case for 7200RPM drives as they
suck down quite a bit of transient power while spinning up.
You might want to take your EPIA board setup and put it into a standard
300W ATX case and see if the problems continue.
However, I wouldn't discount an actual hardware problem. I had an
EPIA-ME6000 board which would spontaneously hang when running RedHat
Linux 9.0, FreeBSD 5.1 or WinXP SP2. I never did get the issue tracked
