One more question - caused by a symptom. If I have have three ide
drives wired up, drive and CD on first IDE connector, a second master
drive on the second ide connector, the system does not see any of the
drives - disconnecting the second hard drive, on second ide conn,
I get the first two back.
Yep, I have checked the cables. Yep I have double and triple
checked the cables and drives. Either drive runs as master,
drive 0, on the ide interface.
