No, sorry, nothing in there either. Are you using AHCI or IDE mode (check your BIOS) for the SATA drive? AHCI tends to work better. I know the question has been posted before and that you couldn't find it but I would be really surprised if there weren't an entry somewhere to select modes - it's just that some BIOSes may hide it where you wouldn't expect it.
It could also be a bad connector, a bad SATA cable etc - but such thing nearly always get logged.
Or maybe, considering that it is a new machine, it has a chipset that is too new to be well supported? Could you post the output of lspci?

I'm not able to use the machine for the coming weeks/months but when I can I will post the output of lspci for you.

Occasionally when booting up I need to run fsck first to fix some errors. Perhaps this is because the machine crashed and the FS got corrupted or would it indicate a malfunctioning drive?

That could be either but having those errors is not a good sign. If the repair did a thorough job, it would stop bothering after the first time. It may be time for a reinstall if you ask me.

reconnected the cd rom drive, disconnected the ata drive and installed Ubuntu 8.04 lts on the sata drive. At first things looked hopeful but the machine still crashes.
When fsck is run during bootup by Ubuntu it crashes with "error code 4" finding a non-expected element. I then have to run fsck manually and it always runs into some fs errors which require repairing.
The corruption could be because of a malfunctioning drive or because of the constant need for hard resets... All in all it seems like the hd is malfunctioning or the sata controller. Perhaps it is time to email the web vendor I purchased it from..

Thanks for the help

edit:
Part of the kernel log. The ext3 messages look like cause for concern..

This sounds similar to a problem I had. I added a SATA drive to my system (after a disc failure), the IDE drive that didn't fail was already set to be slave drive (jumper settings).

I then installed Ubtuntu on the SATA drive after several attempts. After that I had problems booting and it froze. On starting the bios kept asking me to configure RAID for Windows.

I resolved the problem, by changing something in the bios in relation to the new hard drive. Can't remember the exact details.

I think you should be looking carefully at the bios options.
