    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Andre's IDE Patch (1/7)
    I think I know what Andre is referring to (Andre please correct me if I am 
    wrong) and if I am correct than you are still safe to use the currently
    existing big patch (as long as you do NOT tamper with it in any way - I
    mean that, a one line change is sufficient to destroy your data). If you
    split it up, there is a _very_ high chance broken code will be executed
    which will destroy your data on first time a PIO transfer occurs...

    Best regards,

    Anton
