I'm wondering if there is any support for UDMA100 controllers (specifically the HPT370 chipset on the ABIT VP6).   There is a patch to make the HPT370 work under Linux.

Try the idepci flavor floppy disks first. I believe they support at

This describes how to do boot-floppies with a custom kernel.

Start with the vanilla floppies.
