1. Help Mounting 3rd IDE drive on a single KT410A EIDE controller

I have read through countless HOW-TO's FAQ's and README's, looked at the
atdisk2 patches, and still cannot get the third drive recognized by
fdisk -l.

The atdisk2 patch involves modifying a controller's "fingers", and
also was meant for a older kernel.

Directions, pointers to a FAQ I may have missed, or a flat "cant be done"
would be appreciated.
