SATA - System Freezes



Hello Everyone,

I'm running Fedora 8 and my system freezes (for about 20 to 40 seconds) a 
couple of times a day. When it does I see this on /var/log/messages:

------------------------------- cut here -------------------------------------

kernel: ata3.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x2 frozen
kernel: ata3.00: cmd ca/00:50:67:85:03/00:00:00:00:00/e0 tag 0 dma 40960 out

------------------------------- cut here -------------------------------------

/dev/sdc is my main drive. The only thing I can think of...is that this drive 
is actually a PATA drive connected to the SATA controller on MoBo thru 
a "SATA-TO-IDE Adapter" that I connect on the drive. Perhaps the converter is 
faulty...or could this be a known issue with libata?  Anyone had same 
problem?

Thanks,
Jorge
