    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
