Hay I am ran ata HD on 5.4 and now on 6.0 with out any problems. Your problems may be caused by your HD starting to go bad.

You didn't say if you're running plain [parrallel] ATA or Serial ATA. Nearly two years ago I tried to replace our Samba file server with a new box running SATA with the Adaptec controller (1210??) based on the SiI 3112 chipset (same one ragged on here a couple days ago) and FBSD 5.something. Never made it into production -- same hangs you describe.

I filed this issue:
kern/70379: System hangs under heavy disk IO with SiI 3112 SATA150

There were a couple related fixes, but none completely cured it. I switched to a Promise SATA controller, and the problem was lessened to the point the machine was usable. But I can still make it hang just tar'ing a file system to a tar file on the same drive.

Just bought a new Dell SC430 with SATA to replace the whole thing. Running 6.0 for a week now, and it seems solid. It's all Intel electronics: atapci0: <Intel ICH7 UDMA100 controller>. Don't know if the controllers are junk, or it's a FBSD issue. Once the new machine is swapped in, I plan to experiment with 6.0 on the old one to see.
