Just FYI ...
I have personally had issues with kernel 2.2 w/Hendrick's IDE
backport as well as kernel 2.4 on even a late model ViA mVP3 chipset
w/a 596A southbridge mainboard. Once I turn off DMA, 0 problems.
No problems with newer P2/3/Athlon chipsets with the 596B/686A/686B
southbrides though (except for a number of CRC fails/IDE resets on
the 596B/686A -- but no data loss whatsoever).
