RE: promise 66 ide adapter cards

Isn't this merely a kernel issue not a release issue.  I use a Matrox 100
IDE/ATA PCI card, and have no problems with it in woody.  However, I am not
using the stock kernel, I roll my own.  Get a recent 2.4.x kernel source and
look into:

"ATA/IDE/MFM/RLL support"
then "IDE,ATA and ATAPI block devices"
then "Promise PDC20246...." or others
and "Special UDMA featurs"
