# One more question about IDE... on second bootup of my IDE disk on the
# 164LX, I notice one missed IDE DMA interrupt (soft error). How normal is
# that, and should I be worried (i.e. not use that type drive, or try a
# different disk before drawing any conclusions about IDE stability)?
I'm using a WD 8.4 gig IDE very heavily as a build disk (and getting incredible
read/write times from it). I've never seen an error from my IDE drive, which
is more than I can say for the stuff hanging off the NCR. I'm running the last
snapshot. SRM 4.9, and booting from scsi.
