What has this to do with linux-kernel??

Wait a minute before saying 'nothing'...

I have one of these on my P5-100. Works great under Linux, BUT every
time I reboot to MS-DOS/W95 I can no more see it. I have to press
the reset button or power off the machine to make it usable again
under M$'s OSs.

I tried to reset explicitly the IDE interface by adding a reset pulse
just before hard_reset_now, but it didn't work.

It can be a M$ fault, but I suspect that the Linux kernel is in some way
involved here.
