I've updated the files in
There is some minor changes:
    - integration of Jason Downs (OpenBSD)'s quirk system, so that old or
	  strange drive can work (this should make the GoldStar 8X and
	  NEC Multispin 2Vi work. People having problems, especially with the
	  ATAPI_READ_CD_CAPACITY command should contact me, their drive now
      needs a quirk entry (in atapiconf.c, flag AQUIRK_NOCAPACITY).
	- At Milton Ngan's request, wdc now probes for atapi devices first, and
	  then wd drives, because some old atapi devices were detected as ide
	- Integration of Milton Ngan's fix for some
	 'wdc_atapi_intr: unknown phase 1' due to a timing problem.
	- a first step do get the driver indian-independant, from Jason Downs's
	  openbsd commits ( he got it work on an amiga system).

Note that, as said in the README, I only updated the 1.2-ALPHA diffs,
as I don't have any PC running 1.1 anymore. People using my driver with
NetBSD 1.1 will have to use the patch6 file.
Also, note that the new 'official' site is now The diffs at are still up to date (and
has a better link to the internet than, but I certenly will lose my
acces to lix in a month or so.

I can compile a 1.2_BETA kernel for people who can't do it, just send me
a config file, and I'll send you back an uuencoded kernel.
