Strange Hard Drive Error rh *8.0

When redhat is booting i get these strange messages. It takes a good 15 minutes to boot.

hdb: DMA disabled
ide0: reset: success
hdb: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }

hdb: DMA disabled
ide0: reset: success
hdb: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }

ide0: reset: success
hdb: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }

It goes on repeating that for a while and then it boots. Every other time i reboot i have to fsck my drive. any ideas?
