I grepped for Promise in the boot-floppies source, it only shows up in 
README-User, README-ide, and README-idepci. The bf2.4 README only mentions
'modern IDE controllers'.

Maybe that statement could be expanded. Also, I think I should add
something like

'For discussion of differences in hardware capabilities for different
flavors, see the individual README files within the i386 ftp archive
folders for those flavors.'

in the Choosing the Right Installation Set paragraph.
