I was saving this comment until after the issues where solved but now
is as good a time as any.... ever since I got the machine in late
augest I have raised this issue (as politely and approriate as
possible as per posting guidelines and general group feeling) 3 or 4
times (see some of the references on the wiki).   The latest was about
24 hrs before this thread started (the master one) and in conjunction
with 2 other people who reported almost identical problems (and in the
case of this specific subthread 100% identical).

Not a *SINGLE* one of these threads got any attention (except for a
very brief interaction with Xi Lin [I think] that made it so my drives
where are least reconized as being SATA instead of UDMA33).   It was
not until I made the comment that a wiki had been setup did any
attention get payed to the issue.    Please note the orginial note on
the wiki setup said specifically it was made so me and the other two
reporters could work on making a patch (since I thought none of the
current developers had a solution or the possibility of one).

I am not attempting to complain here just say that a slightly better
way has to be found then talking to the wind or PO'ing everyone with
"alarmist" headlines.
