validates_associated

Is the any way to get more descriptive of the errors associated with
the associated model?

I have a site model that has:

validates_associated :Eqptattrs

and below is the error generated from the associated model.

There were problems with the following fields:

    * Eqptattrs is invalid

okie dokie

class Eqptattr < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :site
  belongs_to :equipment

    validates_presence_of :ip
end

class Site < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :eqptattrs, :dependent => :destroy
  has_many :equipments, :through => :eqptattrs

    validates_uniqueness_of :name
    validates_associated :eqptattrs
end

class Equipment < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :eqptattrs, :dependent => :destroy
  has_many :sites, :through => :eqptattrs
end

I also use this kind of validations in another project and I get the
same general error. Is there a better way to handle these kind of
association errors?
