I finally figured out the problem I was having (see my previous message). It
seems that there were 3 fatal corruptions on my reiserfs partitions which I
fixed with reiserfschk --rebuildtree. That seemed to solve the problem.
However looking at my FAT32 partitions I can see more than a dozen bad
blocks. Hmmm...think it's time to get a new hard drive...
I was thinking of getting a Western Digital. I seem to recall that there were
problems with Western Digital ATA100 drives and Linux a couple of years back.
Do those problems still exist with current WD ATA100 HDs?
