Ours is the flash/IDE used in our Firebox-II (and later) model firewalls.
I think it is manufactured by Smart Modular Technologies. Here is it's
ident info:

Model=, FwRev=Ver.7.0, SerialNo=
Config={ HardSect NotMFM Removeable DTR>10Mbs nonMagnetic }
RawCHS=250/4/16, TrkSize=8448, SectSize=528, ECCbytes=4
BuffType=1(1Sect), BuffSize=0kB, MaxMultSect=1, MultSect=off
DblWordIO=no, maxPIO=2(fast), DMA=no
CurCHS=250/4/16, CurSects=16000, LBA=yes, LBAsects=16000

Note that it claims it is removeable, and lacks a Model and Serial No. It
is not removable though; it's soldered to the mainboard. :)
