Yes.  But the 1.3.xx kernels *do* support tertiary ports.

For Linux IDE (big/many) help, see:  /usr/src/linux/drivers/block/README.ide

1. strange problems 1.2.13 --> 2.0.0 --> 1.2.13


I have some strange problems with the new kernel source tree...

after the installation of the new sysvinit-2.62 the linux-2.0.0 kernel
complains sh:/bin/bash cannot execute...
with 1.99.7 this works fine
and at least I'm totally unable to recompile the 1.2.13 source tree due
some strange asm errors in main occurring in asm/io.h referenced by
bugs.h  (also within the asm tree). Of course I checked the appropriate
links to for the linux source tree /usr/include/linux

Please help....
