AUTOBOOT_DELAY is a different one, it waits for user

Right - FILO never even gets to that point.
drive startup times could be an issue though
Could you try some things:
* update to the latest svn revision (17 as I write this) and make sure
you enabled the following option (which is new)
I've tried rev 19.
# Add a short delay when polling status
# (required on some broken SATA controllers)
IDE_DISK_POLL_DELAY = 1
I've tried this; the boot log is attached (minicom-20060505.cap) with
DEBUG_PCI, DEBUG_IDE and DEBUG_LINUXBIOS enabled. Didn't help.
* if that doesnt help: try whether the disk is
detected as hda instead
of hde. This might happen with the current code.
I've tried that too, the bootlog is also attached (minicom-20060505-2.cap).
Still no luck; though here it does seem to find the IDE controller. But not
