Hmm proper IDE driver...
1) I can mount the CF-Card "by hand" and inspect the filesystem. And
it looks good. I can use the file-system in "near single-user-mode".
2) In my "linuxrc" I do the following to load the modules:
------------------------- [ BEGIN linuxrc ] -------------------------
PCIC="ide_cs yenta_socket pcmcia_core pcmcia rsrc_nonstatic"
for Module in $PCIC
modprobe $Module
if [ "$DEBUG" != "" ] ; then
/bin/sh < /dev/console
------------------------- [ END linuxrc ] -------------------------
Is this indication enough, that I use the proper IDE driver?

Has the driver (I think "ide_cs"?) which seems to work from the
initial RAM-disk to be loaded again before the kernel mounts the root-
