Depends on the capabilities of the LS-120. If it's not UDMA, then
it will slow everything on that channel to non-UDMA (AFAIK).
However, if there's nothing on the secondary channel, and it's slave, that
can definitely cause problems. Some machines deal with it, some don't.
If it's the only device, it should be master.
does it appear in the kernel messages? Do you have IDE-Floppy support
Does the Bios see it?
