Harddrive problems

I have recently brought a new harddrive (a seagate drive) and put it in 
with a maxtor drive  I already had.  I am running kernel 2.6.5.  Every 
so often I get kernel panics when the system is booting and trying to 
set up the second harddrive.  It never occurs two boots in a row.  When 
I get an error it looks like this:

hda: ST380011A, ATA DISK drive
hda: IRQ probe failed (0xfcba)
hdb: M ...garbage..., ATA DISK drive
hdb: set_drive_speed_status: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete 
Error}
hdb: set_drive_speed_status: error=0x04 {DriveStatusError}
ide0: Drive1 didn't accept speed setting. Oh, well.

hdb: set_drive_speed_status: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete 
Error}
hdb: set_drive_speed_status: error=0x04 {DriveStatusError}
hdb: INVALID GEOMETRY: 181 PHYSICAL HEADS?
ide-default: hdb: Failed to register the driver with ide.c
kernel panic: ide: default attach failed

But when it runs fine it looks like this:
hda: ST380011A, ATA DISK drive
hda: IRQ probe failed (0xfcba)
hdb: MAXTOR 6L020J1, ATA DISK drive
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
hdc: CW038D ATAPI CD-R/RW, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: JLMS XJ-HD166S, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
hda: max request size: 1024KiB
hda: 156301488 sectors (80026 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=16383/255/63,

hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4 < hda5 hda6 >
hdb: max request size: 128KiB
hdb: 40132503 sectors (20547 MB) w/1819KiB Cache, CHS=39813/16/63, 
UDMA(133)
hdb: hdb1 hdb2 < hdb5 >

Have any of you got any idea what is going on.  It is strange as hdb 
(the old drive) worked fine previously.  Could it be the cables?

Thanks in advance.
