I've made some progress, but still need help. I think the problem relates
to the fact that I upgraded my system and have a faster MLB. I found a ton
of switches in the /proc/ide/hdc/settings. With my older, slower system, I
didn't have to tweak anything. Now I have a faster system, I probably need
to change some of the default settings.
If anyone has gone thru this and has suggestions, I'm ready. If not, I'll
probably need to install an official distro and see how they setup the zip
