Expected an (was in the past) deemed harmless.

This is not deemed harmless.

Nor is not deemed harmless.

The only thing on the upside is that the speeds are correctly set.
The rest is nasty................sheesh...........

Most important question............FS intact?????? YES/NO.........

Does it behave well without the piix.c chipset code?
If so, and everything is cool..........
I need a copy of the output from the "lspci" tool.

lspci -bxxxvv > P55T2P4-430HX.pci

This will tell me what the BIOS did to solve the 430HX udma
detection/access errors that I missed in the docs.
Imperical data is alwasys better than the docs.
