    10 controllers if you have the IDE patches applied. 4 otherwise.

    in your lilo.conf, add a line:

    See /usr/src/linux/Documentation/ide.txt for more info. You may need to
    specify the I/O ports for ide2 and ide3 in this case, as the above I/O
    ports are for ide3.

    If you have a reasonably recent /dev/MAKEDEV installed, you should be able
    to just do "cd /dev; ./MAKEDEV hdi hdj hdk hdl", but failing that,

    hdi = 56,0
    hdj = 56,64
    hdk = 57,0
    hdl = 57,64

    You can always check /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt for more.

    Cheers, Andreas
