I'm about to buy an ide pci card on ebay and I was wondering how they worked in linux.
I have been looking for a module in the kernel (2.6) which handles IDE PCI cards. I think I have found one which is entitled " PCI IDE chipset support" .
Is this the correct module for running IDE PCI cards? Are there any other modules I need?
Of course, it might be that it doesn't need a module, and just works.
Once the card is working (assuming it does) and I plug my hard drive in it, wiill it just show as another hard drive. That is, hda hdb hdc etc.
Thanks for you help in advance.
