SubjectSATA/IDE Dual Mode w/Intel 945 Chipset or HOW TO LIQUIFY a flash IDE chip under 2.6.18

I just finished pulling out a melted IDE flash drive out of a Shuttle
motherboard with the intel 945 chipset which claims to support
SATA and IDE drives concurrently under Linux 2.6.18.

The chip worked for about 30 seconds before liquifying in the chassis.
I note that the 945 chipset in the shuttle PC had some serious
issues recognizing 2 x SATA devices and a IDE device concurrently. Are
there known problems with the Linux drivers
with these newer chipsets.

One other disturbing issue was the IDE flash drive was configured (and
recognized) as /dev/hda during bootup, but when
it got to the root mountint, even with root=/dev/hda set, it still kept
thinking the drive was at scsi (ATA) device (08,13)
and kept crashing with VFS cannot find root FS errors.
