I have purchased a Dell OptiPlex GMT 5133 to use as a Linux firewall.
I have discovered that although it has two ide ports on the motherboard
RedHat Linux 7.0 install only sees the first one. A quick search on
the Dell support web site reveals that to use the second ide port on
the motherboard requires a special driver that Dell lists as being
available for several older operating systems:
IBM OS/2 2.1x
Microsoft Windows 3.1
Microsoft Windows NT 3.1
Novell NetWare 3.1x
Novell NetWare 4.0x
SCO UNIX 3.2.4
Anyone have any luck getting any version of Linux to recognize the ide2
interface on this motherboard?
