SubjectPossible problem with IDE device driver in kernel.
I would like to report a bug that I've seen in a few linux kernels now. This 
may be a serious problem with the IDE controler software because it may cause
a hard drive to ware out over a period of time. I've noticed for a long time
that when linux is loaded the hard drive light on my computer goes on and
stays on. It never turns off. If I boot with windows the light turns off. I
think it may be the device driver that forgets to turn of the light. Could
one of you please confirm if this is a problem with the kernel and get back
to me if it is not.

Thank you,

Philip V. Neves
