Wonder full. Does X work?
Yes, X works if VGABIOS is used.
I tried to
configure EPIA (V1) code to use native mode,
and the ports read something not 0xff, but the drive doesn't
respond to soft reset.
I don't know the bug is in FILO, LinuxBIOS, or the hardware.

use compatible mode; otherwise, system will
have problem with IRQ.
I don't use IRQ. According to the comment in the southbridge code,
it has speed problem when native mode. I took that it does work
in native mode..
