Can you try disabling UDMA entirely?  This would help determine if it
is a disk/hardware problem or a Linux IDE driver problem.

This is definitely an IDE issue, and not an ext3 issue.  The ext3
error is simply reporting that the data it tried to read is bad
(all zero) for a directory.

You could also try Andre Hedrick's IDE patches, which are supposed to
fix some kinds of UDMA problems with some chipsets.  This requires that
you patch and compile your own kernel (or you can try a kernel like
2.4.18-ac which has these patches included).

Cheers, Andreas
