Could you try to format them before dd'ing on them, like fdformat /dev/fd0h1440?
I am not sure if that will change anything, though.

I am begining to believe that there is some sort of hardware problem with your
box or it is an upgraded version which was a -140 in it's previous life, but my
-140 is rock solid with Leigh's 2.4.19 kernel - once it's up, that is.
I will leave it running tonight to see what happens,
