Ive noticed that newer bios'es will let you set the IDE device as a
LS-120 and not just a user defined 120 meg harddrive usually have no
problem booting NetBSD, or Linux from it.  But this is just from my
experience with ASUS and IWILL motherboards shoot me for not having the
bios manufacture/version handy.
