Hmmm...  I've never had a problem detecting an IDE drive, but I've never
seen a Pentium II system up close.

Dale, do you have any ideas?  Could there be a driver incompatibility
with the new Pentium II motherboards?  I have not yet heard any examples
of people running Linux on Pentium II systems.

Hasib, I suggest that you search through the newsgroups
comp.os.linux.hardware and/or comp.os.linux.setup, comp.os.linux.misc for
references to Pentium II systems, and see if there is any useful info.

Thanks.  Syrus.
