SubjectRe: IDE-UDMA error
Something is screwed up here guys.  I dont know who any of you are and I got 210
msg's today. You guys are sending stuff to linux-whatever@vger.rutgers.edu. For
some reason, these msg's get into my system too. So whatever is going on, dont
send any more msg's my way. 210 is 209 too many.
