Unfortunately I've told you all I know, really. I don't use IDE at all
myself, so I don't know all the details here to be able to help _much_
more. However, a quick google search (160GB disk linux kernel)
suggests that 2.4.19 and later may work better. If you have another
system available where you could build a kernel, it should be possible
to build a new set of boot floppies that will support this disk.
