Have you tried switching the cables over to the other connector, i.e.
plug the CD/DVD drives into the secondary connector and vice-versa? Of
course, you will also have to edit /etc/fstab to reflect the change,
i.e. hdc will/should become hda and hdd will be hdb.
Thanks for your reply. I doubt cabling is the problem as this machine has been working for several months.
I think I may have a hard disk failure or maybe a rootkit.
The boot message shows udev failed to start; dont know what this means
the system is realy slow after about ten minute boot
