It shows up under MSDOS after DOS loads a driver that
came with the drive and then lists
the IRQ and declares that it is an ATAPI device. Funny thing
here is that I cannot get my AMI Bios setup to detect it
and neither can Linux (no matter which kernel I use or which
device). What gives here??? Very frustrating.
