well this is as good as place as any, to end the myth.

IDE CDROM's run without the EIDE controller, the old type just fine, i
thought this might be true for linux, but it is also true of dos as well.

So we can all of us on ISA Bus machines, can trash our EIDE controllers
at least if we live in a Linux world, i guess i really do need a EIDE
controller with 528 meg hard drives at least if i want dos to see past
528 meg... or this another hoax, Is the EIDE controller for ISA bus
machines just a way to enable mult-sector support?
