I realise that this is not a Gentoo spesific question, but I couldnt find any other suitable forum for it.

I own a HP B1000 machine with a PA-RISC 8500 cpu on which I run Gentoo. This machine has two PCI slots and I was wondering if it would be possible to place a pci ide controller in one of them and use IDE harddrives as the onboard ide controller only supports cdrom.

I realise that it would not be possible to boot from an ide disk and that the controller should not be bootable at all (due to bios interference etc), but would this be at all possible?

It should be working but I've never tested it.

I asked the guys who port the kernel and they think siimage works.
Again it's not sure but it has good chance to work.

Well, not all controller cards has been bootable on HPPA-machines. I've never tried or had a thought either IDE controllers on my B1000. But surely you have to modify your machine, if you want to seat those IDE-disks to it. On B2000 it could be easier due to it's different inside.
