I seem to be having a bizarre problem with my Multia. Namely, on the
NetBSD INSTALL kernel, it does not recognise the wdc0 IDE controller.
As I would like to place the system root on a 128Mb CompactFlash card
and boot off floppy, I need IDE. However, it seems to not be
recognised whatsoever. It finds com0, com1 and lpt1 all fine, however.

Is there a fix for this, or is it safe to say that the IDE controller
is borken and I need to get a pcmcia->CF adapter?
