    SubjectRe: Problem with SanDisk Compact Flash disks on IDE with kernel 2.4.x
    Thank you,

    > consistent with this "feature").

    Perfect, it works, in some weeks my hair will be back!

    > BTW testing with 2.2.18, hdb would silently be ignored.
    > Kernel panic is well probably more consistent with this
    > "feature".

    I forgot to write about the problems when trying to install Redhat 7.1
    and Redhat 7.2 with the CF present, then the real IDE disk/dev/hdb was
    never found.
    Passing the parameter (hdb=flash) to the distribution kernel at
    install solved this too.
