Now this confuses me. I assumed that if the ide-scsi was built as a
module you would use options in the /etc/modutils setup to pass in the
options when loading the module. I thought the append= line in lilo.conf
was to pass in settings to compiled in code. Is that a wrong assumption?
Another question: I have everything compiled into the kernel instead of
as modules. I have two IDE drives and I'm *not* using the append line,
yet the drives are still setup correctly as SCSI.
Why don't I need the append= line?
