Problems with IDE master/slave settings on Blue & White
I've got linux on a pb5300, G3-266, but the Blue & White gives
Since I guess I have one of those first motherboards where the
second ide (Ultra ATA) doesn't work well, I try to install cdrom
as well as 40Gb disc on the first ide. The jumper settings that work
for OS9 are (I can boot from cdrom AND hd)
Disk: CS (carrier select) +Master
When trying to boot from linux cdrom, I get into Open Firmware 3.1.1
and it says "default catch". The system freezes. Here OS 9 works
I have tried another setting, where the cdrom boots, but ... it doesn't
see the harddisk:
disk: CS + Master
cdrom: CS + Slave
I have the same problem with os X, install dies away, without saying
I know there are memory issues, but I use one 64Mb pc100sdram that
should be ok.
With another chip, I have generated the message "drawrect: cannot find
I guess at that moment there is something wrong with the ROM, where
of procedures reside...
I should first resolve the ide settings.... and be able to boot from
both cdrom and disk
on the same ide bus. Or is that impossible with IDE?
Now, the things that might be interesting on my motherboard: (400mhz)

I don't see a word like "REV A" or "REV B"....
Inside the metal case, at the bottom-front I see: 805-2071B
The harddisk: (I guess this is OK...)
