During POST there seems to be some BIOS stuff claiming some kind of
RAID message. It also offers a setup when F3 is pressed. 
However I don't use it as RAID. I just run two ATAPI burners in DMA
mode. Two years ago I didn't find any other IDE controller that can
operate ATAPI drives in DMA mode when burning. I had been fiddling
with some Promise controllers. But I was not able to run them in DMA
mode when burning.
If you know of any other controller that can run ATAPI burners in
DMA mode when burning, I'd be interested.

Yes, the patch works on 1.6.2! Thanks!

I've built the kernel anew. But I had to modify pcidevs.h. But then
it built.

Thanks again.
