Floppy problems

There seems to be a problem with the SWIM3 controller on my PowerMac G3.
Whenever I try to do any floppy realted operation (mount, dd, whatever) it
gives me this error:

end_request: I/O error, dev 02:00 (floppy), sector 36

does anyone know what this means or has had similar problems?

I'm running R5 on a a kernel I compiled myself, but not with anything
outrageous, just a few patches. I've got a G3/266, and I'm running linux off
a internal scsi drive.
