The IBM ThinkPad-500 sub-notebook doesn't keep disk parameters in CMOS,
so I need to specify "hd=cyls,hds,secs" as a boot parameter. The
Slackware-2.1 installation docs mention to use the "scsi" boot disk
rather than the "bare" boot disk so I can use the "hd=..."
parameter. Does this mean that if I recompile the kernel I have to
enable SCSI support in order to be able to use this boot parameter
even though I don't have any SCSI devices in my system?
