SubjectRe: promise ide problem: missing disks (RESOLVED)
Ok, the 0.30 Promise driver was ok (in RedHat 7.3 and 2.4.18) if it
supports the card. 0.32 is broken, this is in 2.4.19 and 20-pre. The
0.35 driver in -ac and 2.5 is fine too.

Given that, I think the bbest solution is if the driver updates in -ac
go to Marcello for 2.4.21-pre1... though it seems a pity to ship 2.4.20
with a driver that is broken.
