It's an 80 wire. I have two drives on nearly all of my machines and never
had an issue with crashing until just recently. Started in 5.4, gone in
6.1-PRE, back in 6.1-RC.  It doesn't happen alot though under 6.1-RC. But
under 5.4 it was about every 8 hours on average. So in one sense 6.1 is
still saving my arsh.
