What motherboard do you have?  I have an AMD64 that got huge amounts of
XRuns due to a buggy IDE controller.  After recompiling the kernel for my
IDE chipset and removing the generic IDE driver, everything worked fine. 
I am not at my home machine and can't give you the exact details.  But I
have the ASUS K8V Deleuxe, for which the IDE chipset and on-board Marvel
NIC are known problems.

Also, the memory controller is on the chip NOT the motherboard with the
AMD64.  It is also a little buggy and EXTREMELY picky about the memory you
use.  I had to try three different brands before getting it to work

I hope this helps!
