I have a retiered BP6 at home I could try to bring up this weekend. The only
problem is that I haven't been able to boot a 2.6 kernel from the HPT 366
attached drive it as the device id's seem to have been shuffeled about on me.
hdd goes to something else or so i thought before I gave up on the thing.

I could put 2 IDE's in it one on the 366 and one on the chipset IDE
controllers to get the thing to boot up.

just let me know.
