Thanks for the info!

Yes it looks like I may have a few problems:
1) The drive is on the same channel as my DVD Rom so it's downgraded itself
to UDMA 33 (though some discussions of the VIA 686 chipset bugs on windows
indicate that this might actually be a good thing as it limits the DMA
2) NTFS-3G has had (and may still have) bugs around writing large files to a
disk that is getting full.

Hmmm how to convert that NTFS to ext3 without a spare drive and not losing
the 90Gig of data hmmm.
