I'm seeing my HD light stay on continuously and I'm getting all these errors in Event Viewer
saying "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort0." I'm also getting Event viewer saying that:

That suggests an error on either the motherboard ide controller or whatever device is connected to it. Is it an ide or sata hard drive, new machine, what motherboard? Try running checkdisk. In Windows Explorer, right click on the C: drive, properties, tools tab, check now, continue, uncheck automatically fix errors, start.

Chkdsk says that all 3 of my primary drives and 1 logical drive are OK. MB is an Asus A8V Deluxe that's about 8 months old. Any other ideas?

Good, but what's connected to the primary ide controller? There are primary drives and primary partitions. You can have a primary partition without it being connected to the primary controller. If all the drives are sata, then it's a cd or dvdrom connected to the primary ide controller. XP reported errors on the controller when sometimes it was only errors on a cd or dvd in the drive.

My CD/DVD burner is attached as the slave on my C drive but it seems to be working perfectly. All of my drives are ide, no SATA's on this machine.

What about my other problem:

I believe that this is the reason my drive is constantly running. How do I stop and restart the search service?

Well, I've about had it with this motherboard. I'm going to assume that that is where the trouble is coming from. It's only 8 months old but has given me problems on and off since I first got it. What sort of problems you ask. One, I have 2 portable drive bays so I can remove the drives after shutdown and quickly switch C: drives. Every time I do that the motherboard "speaks out" to me and say's "system failed CPU test" until I reset the cmos which is a pain. It's done this since it was new and tech support has no explanation for it. My 3 hard drives are over 3 years old so I feel I'm on borrowed time with them too. I intend to get a new MB, 2 larger SATA drives and another Gig of memory. Now my worry is will I have problems with Microsoft and activation? I've had Vista Business since Jan 30th and it will only be Feb 15th or 16th when the new MB, drives and memory arrive. What sort of problems will they give me, anyone know?

I had the problem of a yakkin mobo with that message on an Aopen board. What I did was disconnect all the usb, firewire, and unused hardware and the problem disappeared. I've still never reconnected anything that I didn't absolutely need and it's still running fine right now, 2 years later. If you go to the site of the hard drive manufacturer and get their diagnostic software, and it says the hard drive is fine, then yes, it's the mobo.
