Question A7N8X2.0 deluxe hangs - especially when burning cdrom

i got a A7N8X2.0 deluxe, and i have serious stability issues in Linux.

when i try to burn a cdrom, the whole system locks up. i tried at the console (no X loaded), and i did see as last output of cdrecord:

aborting command due to timeout: pid <pid>, scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0 write (10) 00 00 00 0c 98 00 00 1f 00
hdd: timeout waiting for DMA
hdd: timeout waiting for DMA
hdd: (__ide_dma_test_irq) called while not waiting

Then the box is locked up.

I do have read the installation guides, i do have selected AMD Viper support, i don't have enabled ACPI support, i have searched around but i am clueless.

Kernels i have tried:
2.4.21 vanilla

Is there a kernel or patch i shall try?
What about the hdparm settings - could they help? if yes, then which? I could really use some help!
