Does it see the disk where the root partition resides? If you boot
off of IDE or some other device, can you perform I/O to this disk?

I don't know of any changes outside of adding the driver and adjusting the
Makefiles that are required.

You can just send the info to me. If it's not my bug I'll redirect you
to the list.
