- This is useful if you have an ATAPI device for which no native
- driver has been written (for example, an ATAPI PD-CD drive);
- you can then use this emulation together with an appropriate SCSI
- device driver. In order to do this, say Y here and to "SCSI support"
- and "SCSI generic support", below. You must then provide the kernel
- command line "hdx=ide-scsi" (try "man bootparam" or see the
- documentation of your boot loader (lilo or loadlin) about how to
- pass options to the kernel at boot time) for devices if you want the
- native EIDE sub-drivers to skip over the native support, so that
- this SCSI emulation can be used instead.
- Note that this option does NOT allow you to attach SCSI devices to a
- box that doesn't have a SCSI host adapter installed.
If both this SCSI emulation and native ATAPI support are compiled
into the kernel, the native support will be used.
