The IDE collision is no problem here. It's the whole set that needs to 
be matched and it seems as if it is isa bridge subsystem id versus ide 
controller main id. So no problem there.

This seems as good a match as any, i hope that the other board Ning was 
mentioning differs from this.

Well, pci subsystem ids are as reliable as the board vendors. There are 
other options, but pci subsystem ids are very universal and easy to 
retrieve. Vendor error is the big let-down here, although, for the 
unichrome, there has been some albeit minimal positive evolution over 
the years.
