Angry how2 make the kernel scan both PCI IDE and Mboard IDE channels?


Hi!

I have a PCI IDE SIL680 chipset. It works fine since I compiled the support into kernel. I also compiled it so that kernel will scan the PCI IDE first.

The problem is, the kernel stop at PCI IDE and it doesn't go and scan the mainboard IDE.

How do I make the kernel go all the way to scan mainboard IDE devices?

Another question I think this is related with passing message to kernel as well.

If I have 2 network cards, different make (chipset). How do I tell the kernel which is eth0 and which is eth1?

Thanks in advance.

Easy if you load them as modules,
you just put
alias eth0 <first_module>
alias eth1 <second_module>
in /etc/modules.conf

Cheers,
