Default nForce lockups

The nForce lockup problem has been around for a while now. I have spent the better part of a month trying to fix it. It is making my system virtually unusable-and making me wonder if nVidia deserves its reputation as a Linux-friendly company.
These are the "fixes" I have used: setting idle=pass, not compiling ACPI into the kernel, setting mem=nopentium, setting acpi=off. Then only unimplemented fix I have heard about is using hdparm to change a UDMA setting, but I'm not sure how to do this.

Has anybody solved this problem? How?


NF7-S 2.0, GeForce FX 5600 ULTRA, Debian with kernel 2.6.5, Athlon XP 1700+ at 2 GHz
