I use minicom and a null modem serial cable. One of minicom's commands
will capture everything sent to the serial port, to a file. Other
options are available. Googling for "linux serial console" found
several useful starting-point links.

The basic idea is to sent console output to a serial port, and then have
some method of reading and capturing the serial port's data.

Another alternative is netconsole (google for "linux netconsole"), which
permits output over the network.

Well, this goes back to David's basic request: IDE-only or ATA-only.

You really, really, really should not to enable both at the same time.

If you are choosing ATA-only (libata), then you should disable
CONFIG_IDE and everything associated with CONFIG_IDE, including
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SVWKS.

libata will want something like
CONFIG_ATA
CONFIG_ATA_VERBOSE_ERROR <-- optional, but helpful
CONFIG_PATA_SERVERWORKS

CONFIG_SCSI
CONFIG_SCSI_LOGGING <-- ditto
CONFIG_SCSI_CONSTANTS <-- ditto
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SR <-- required only for CD-ROM support

Regards,

Jeff
