But the problem isn't limited to /dev/sdb, since /dev/sda also has
problems.  (I can't do any of the tricks, i.e., dd or pdisk -l /dev/sda
with it either.  Again, this is all under 2.4.10-pre12, 2.2.18 works

Nothing bad happened, and no error messages came out (I checked
the entire /dev/sdb drive), so I'm assuming my drive is ok.
