Thanks for your response....

I have this drive set to use DMA, although it's only udma2. Does the udma
mode really make that much difference? When I try using "hdparm -d1 -X 68
/dev/hda" to set udma4, and then do a hdparm -I, it tells me that it's
still in mode 2.

I _am_ running it as root :-(

Unfortuantely I couldn't get my DVB-T card to work under the 2.4.25-epia
kernel, which is why I'm using 2.6.1-epia. DVB and ALSA work well with
this, but Myth doesn't want to play!
