BTW: Are there any firmware upgrades available?

For the 30GB no. this is a Coner Model.

The 40 and 60 is an IBM Licence.. there it is possible.

In Germany MCE is the Dsitributor.. they can tell you more about rhe
Firmware.

Probably kernel > 2.4.18 tries to get even more out of the ide
controller and 
hard drive. Unfortunately the Exelstore seems to fail now. Probably you
can 
port the old driver to the actual kernel release although I would not 
recommend that. You might get other problems. I think you should use PIO

instead of DMA as the firmware of this drive seems to be buggy, not the
linux 
kernel.
