Ok, I can see the explanation about the Highpoint chip.

Based upon the actual error messages, I would examine the cables and speed 
settings first.

My interpretation of the errors is that the card is having trouble finding 
a speed setting that will work with what I assume are ancient hard drives. 
The 42MB and 100MB drives I would guess are old, and don't speak DMA, or 
even a high PIO mode, and therefore are giving trouble when the card tries 
to set what the card thinks is a reasonable transfer speed setting.

Out of curiosity, what happens if you were to unplug all the older drives 
from the card, and boot with only the newer hard drive attached and on 
(and maybe the CD drive, that should be fine as well)?

If the errors go away I would then assume that it is a speed setting issue 
with the older drives, and then look further in that area.  You might want 
to include Soren (the ata code maintainer) a little further down the line 
(if you search the -current mailing archives for ata, you'll find his 
e-mail address, I don't have it handy), if it does turn out to be a 
setting, which he may be better able to explain than I, being that he 
understands this stuff much better.  Who knows, it may be something that 
needs a sysctl tunable, or maybe an alteration to the code, but some more 
troubleshooting should be done.

Trying out the cables and that stuff first means you don't have to delve 
into a custom kernel at the moment, so try what's easiest first, and go 
from there.
