comment What would cause SSD to become not detectable?
That looks like a hardware issue - I'd get in touch with Intel directly. They may want you to do some BIOS and drive firmware updates, but I'd suspect the drive will be RMA'd and you'll be sent a new one.

Cool, sounds like something else then. Do you know the last time the umounting/remounting thing happened? Or does it happen all the time? You'll need to look at the system logs to hopefully find something related. If you do a tail -n 100 /var/log/syslog, can you post it on pastebin.com and link to it here?

In your BIOS somewhere (hit Delete or F1 or F10 on boot, it should say which button to "Enter Setup") it should list all of the SATA ports and what is connected to each of them, but where this screen is varies depending on your motherboard. It doesn't really matter which SATA port the SSD is connected to. For most people it's SATA0 or 1, and a DVD drive is the other one.

What is the BIOS setting for that SATA port? ATA or AHCI or auto or something else? I've had problems in the past when it was set to ATA or auto.

comment Set up a Serial-to-Ethernet Converter With a Virtual Serial Port
Accepted as I don't think there is any other solution. As stated in another comment, the telnet interface for this device was a configuration interface only - there did not seem to be any way to get the telnet session to forward serial data. The device looks like it needs a kernel driver (or a lot of reverse engineering) to operate and none exists.

The telnet interface was a configuration interface only, it did not allow for passing of serial communications.

comment Set up a Serial-to-Ethernet Converter With a Virtual Serial Port
That was a typo. Fixed now. I came to the conclusion that this device requires a kernel driver (that doesn't exist), so I ended up getting another device - a Moxa Nport 5250A Serial Device Server, which has drivers for 2.4-2.6 kernels. It seems to be working well. I'm sure the original 3one data device would have worked if they actually wrote a driver for it.
