I've updated the distrib of the new ide system (still in The Generic kernel and
boot floppy should follow soon (compiling rigth now).

Changes since last release:
 - better error recovery for IDE drives
 - better support for unknown pci or non-pci ide controllers (untested).

UDMA still doesn't work. I've found one or two things which need to be fixed,
but I will not be able to test in before next friday, unless I can find
someone who can run tests for me.

As usual, plase report any success/failure.
