you can use ctl-L to refresh a vim edit screen... (if you're in insert
mode, hit <ESC> first)... beats quitting and starting over.
do these errors always occur on /dev/hdc or random devices? if always
/dev/hdc, is that a CD/DVD or a HD ? that OQO thing is some kinda
VIA C7 or whatever? you might try disabling DMA on the /dev/hdc, like...
/sbin/hdparm -d0 /dev/hdc
[this would have to be put in a init file, maybe /etc/rc.d/rc.local ]
