Actually, I did have it set up properly in sbpcd.h.  It wasn't the sbpcd 
driver that was "crappy".  In fact, the Linux driver worked better than 
any of the Windoze drivers ever did.  I call the drive crappy because 
Teac gave poor support on every front.  I was happy when the thing 
actually died.  Now I have a simple 4X IDE drive which works beautifully.

Thanks.  Syrus.
