The new "smart" controler has no io functions or ports. My original ide
card is there for that purpose.  I have only one harddrive The harddrive
and the floppy are connected to the new GSI model 21 EIDE board.  The cmos
is set to nothing; no hardrives, no floppys. (thats the way it works)

Both floppy drives are recognised by dos.  The worst that can happen is I
have to reconfigure the drives.  I thought there might be a linux solution
I don't know about
