Mandrake 7 detects the 366 controller at install and does the old
ide2=0xblah blah blah bit to get it to work as a normal ide controller when it
is installing. Then you can patch the kernel and remove the append line from
lilo.conf after installation.
I don't know the there will definitly support for it in the 2.4 kernel but I've
heard that there will be.

Anybody know if any distribution supports the HighPoint HPT366 DMA66
controller (as in the ABIT BE6 board) in their installation image. There are
source kernel patches about but nobody seems to have support for it at
install time. I suppose I could build a custom install kernel but . . . . .
Incidentally, does anyone know for certain that there is support for it
built into the 2.4 branch ?
