Yes, it did, but unfortunately ReiserFS is a moving target. I'm betting that
your ReiserFS partitions were created with a 2.4 kernel - if not, please let
me know as this is an issue which we're concerned about in the LNX-BBC

Hmm - one would expect that the chances of two hard disks failing at about
the same time are rather small. Could be BIOS, could be something in the IDE
hardware on the mobo - the controller card has of course got its own IDE
hardware too. Do you have access to another box you can try either of the
disks in ?
