Subjectcan I use an udma-pci card on an alpha?
I had a spare CMD646 udma-card lying around, and put it in my alpha
(PWS500au). Everything boots fine, but there seems to be no HD

block: queued sectors max/low 39013kB/13004kB, 128 slots per queue
Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 6.31
ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx
CMD646: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 20
CMD646: chipset revision 1
CMD646: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
CMD646: chipset revision 0x01, MultiWord DMA Limited, IRQ workaround enabled
ide0: BM-DMA at 0x8080-0x8087, BIOS settings: hda:pio, hdb:pio
ide1: BM-DMA at 0x8088-0x808f, BIOS settings: hdc:pio, hdd:pio
Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 2.88M

jurriaan@alpha:~$ cat /proc/ide/cmd64x

CMD646 Chipset.

PIO Mode: ? ? ? ?

CFR = 0x00, HI = 0x00, LOW = 0x00
ARTTIM23 = 0x4c, HI = 0x04, LOW = 0x0c
MRDMODE = 0x00, HI = 0x00, LOW = 0x00

Is the bios (which is x86) strictly necessary to set up the drives? I
tried searching the web for 'udma on alpha' etc. but found nothing.
