Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

Got a new Western Digital drive for my wife's linux box.

Got it set up and my fdisk partitian table looks like

Device boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdc1 1 232581 117220792* 83 Linux

Now the problem is when I try to format it with
mke2fs -j /dev/hdc1

During the "Writing superblocks and filesustem accountin information" stage i get a slew of these warning/errors
hdc: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveStatusError BadCRC }
hdc: dma_intr: error=0x84 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }

Going through the various web pages I see some things to turn on DMA support in the kernel but is already compiled into mine (compiled in, not a module)

And for some reason I cant turn off UDMA in the BIOS (another fix mentioned)

I currently running redhat 7.3 (2.4-18 kernal, SMP)

Any ideas, I can use them
