System freezes when I write to/read from my SATA software-RAID-1 array


I recently bought two new 500gb SATA drives with the intention to run them in (software) raid-1. But whenever I've mounted them and *do* anything to them, my system (I'm running Slackware 12.0, with the precompiled 2.6.21.5 kernel) will freeze within a few seconds or minutes.

The following related messages appear in dmesg:

"ATA: abnormal status 0x7F on port 0x0001efe7" especially caught my attention, but I have no idea what it means.

EDIT: The problem only seems to occur when I've mounted the drives as an array. I used mdadm to set it up and here are the settings I use:

Code:
DEVICE          /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1
ARRAY           /dev/md0 devices=/dev/sda1,/dev/sdb1
ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid1 num-devices=2 UUID=97d1ecc1:3e7046e5:da98551b:2a250185
