I had a box just this week had a similar symptom (except it was Windows) 
- turned out the 5V was quite low (4.5~4.7V) and the hard drive was 
doing an undervoltage reset until the system warmed up. Needless to say 
that 2yr old power supply (Antec TruePower 430 - bye-bye Antec) is no 
good anymore.
