Thanks for the info (Paul/Brak/Niall),
It's a 2.4 Kernel I'm using allright. An it's not just these two disks
either. They were a replacement for an older 10G disk that died in similar
maner some months back. I had put that down to being an old disk and it's time
had come but maybe not? I have another box that I'm putting together for my
cousin and it has MDK8 on it now. I'll probably put the disks in this and do
some big file movements and md5sum checks. But I'm afraid I already know what
the result will be. Hmm, Scan had a 40G disk going relatively cheep yesterday,
must keep an eye on them.
cursed BP6 strikes again... :(

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 ?
