	I'm afraid I have some problems with that card too. I've got a
hard drive and a cd burner attached to that controller, and the hard disk
works fine, but the cd burner doesn't. Random failures occur when reading
reading from it. One time, reading the toc gave a track length of 2^32.
Mostly I get media errors though.

	I've seen this happen before with one of the 2.2 kernels.
