Having same problem here. An upgrade from fiesty to gutsy started the problems. Discovered that if I boot the fiesty kernel 2.6.20-16 all is well. Booting gutsy kernel 2.6.22-14 causes emask errors and ata soft resets. Unlike the above user I have to wait tens of minutes before I get into kdm.

There is a thread here with users having similar troubles:

Motherboard is ASUS A7S-VM, SiS730S chipset, SIS5513 ide controller.
