Sounds hardware related to me.  Try executing

dd if=/dev/hda | wc -c

(That command will read your entire hard drive and then output a count of 
how many bytes were read)

Then, keep an eye on syslog for error messages.

If it's been stable under other OS's, try booting to one of them and then 
trying the same command.  Or, boot off one of their install cd's (using 
'linux rescue') and run the same command.

It sounds to me like your drive may be going bad.  If you don't get any 
errors from that command, then you know that your drive is reading OK.
