Problem attaching external disk to TP

Problem attaching external disk to TP

1. I'm trying to attach an external disk to my IBM Thinkpad 600
running linux 2.2.5 (modified RedHat 6).  The TP correctly
identifies the disk, but gets data errors, as /var/log/messages
shows.

   Nov 24 22:43:22 benvolio cardmgr[1779]: socket 1: ATA/IDE Fixed Disk
   Nov 24 22:43:22 benvolio cardmgr[1779]: executing: 'insmod /lib/modules/2.2.5-20/pcmcia/ide_cs.o'

   Nov 24 22:43:30 benvolio kernel: hde: read_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
   Nov 24 22:43:30 benvolio kernel: hde: read_intr: error=0x04 { DriveStatusError }
   Nov 24 22:43:30 benvolio kernel: hde: read_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
   ...
   Nov 24 22:43:31 benvolio kernel:  unable to read partition table
   Nov 24 22:43:31 benvolio kernel: ide_cs: hde: Vcc = 5.0, Vpp = 0.0
   Nov 24 22:43:31 benvolio cardmgr[1779]: executing: './ide start hde'

The disk worked last time I used it, which was in a Thinkpad
755CD.

Where do I learn more about these errors?

Should I be using LBA or similar?  How?

2. Is there any way to change parameters to the ide routine, such
   as hde=1023,15,255 ide2=0x1e8,0x3ee,11, w/o rebooting?  I
   failed to get the ide_cs module to accept any parameters.

Thanks.

1. Attaching a third party External Disk to 7015/930 Server

Hi,

We are looking at the possibility of attaching a third party external disk
to an IBM RS/6000 7015 Model 930 Server Configuration. The third Party disk
is from Pinnacle. The capacity of the disk is 2.4GB. Has anyone done this?
Is it feasible and possible to do? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
