  For me it worked out of the box, probably because I have a SCSI host
adapter which doesn't consume irq 14 and 15 for my other discs. If this
is not your case, you might try to make sure that the ISA controller
will use other IRQs. There should be some kernel config option for
adding more IDE hdds but this option might only be required if this is
the 3rd controller in the machine or that you need to boot from those
additional hdds. Not sure about it, I have never used it.
