Perfect, thanks Rick.  In addition to my old HP box I recently brought a Mac G4 PPC back to life thanks to Debian and will need to do the same.  Glad to know others have it working!

No argument here, Stefan.  The ultimate solution for me is to use only SATA drives in the future, but in the meantime while I'm mixing IDE and SATA on the same (old) mobo I'll probably stick with Frankenstein adapters until my trusty IDE drives fail which is hopefully many more years :).

Thanks everyone for the feedback.
