Error Message During Booting with Linux 2.4

I'm running Mandrake 9.2. During booting I saw this message:
end request: I/O error, cmd 0 dev 16:40 (hdd)

And there are at least 10 lines of them.

What causes that message? Can anyone help me?

Have you got anything connected as slave to the secondary IDE channel?

hda = primary IDE channel master
hdb = primary IDE channel slave
hdc = secondary IDE channel master
hdd = secondary IDE channel slave
