Well. I'm having the same problems as a lot of people here.  I'm also
seeing reference to /linux-1.1.76/drivers/block/README.ide but no one has
yet mentioned where this can be found.  I'm using the site ftp.cdrom.com

Oh.  If this is answered in the FAQ, then ignore this, but if not...

I have a 740 HD that uses a driver instead of altering CMOS directly (at least,
that's the way it looks..CMOS says the drive is a 10 meg type 1 drive).
I'm also using Linux 2.1.0 w/ 4 megs ram.  I have a partition for dos that's
540 megs, and want to install Linux after that. (this is also my second HD)
Everything works fine until i use the Linux fdisk...which will report the
following:

device     boot    begin     start     end      blocks    id    system

/dev/hdb1            1         1        1          0       6  Dos 16-bit>32M
[other error messages are supposed to be solved with the README.ide]

I don't get it?  why does it (basically) say i have a non-existant dos
drive?  I must have done something wrong...but can't figure out what.
When i use fdisk on my first HD (which is all dos), it reports everything
correctly.  Hopefully, there is an answer somewhere out there.

It is part of the source distribution of linux-1.1.76 and higher.

1. IDE with >1024 cyl and Dynamic Drive Config?

Hi.
I've just installed a 540 Mb HD (Western Digital), with a Dynamic Drive
Configuration (DDC) supplied by Western Digital with the Ontrack software.
This device, under MSDOS, is an extension of the BIOS and allow MSDOS to view
fully HD up to 8Gb. Moreover, it increase a lot the HD performances,
especially under Windows. I would like to install Linux over this HD
mantaining  DDC, but I need a similar DDC under Linux. The Ontrack says that a
similar BIOS extension should be available in the future for other OS.
So, my question is: exists any DDC BIOS extension for Linux?
Thanks a lot,
                              Carlo
