Ok then, I think it may complicate things too much if we had a  
IDENTIFY_DRIVE command query to the drive (Note: this command query is  
also used for DMA settings). That would be like basicly re-writing an  
IDE driver??

So, I propose a global option (IDE_CABLE = 40 or 80) that can easily  
be adjusted from Config.lb in the targets directory, that sets the  
value for a simple function in  
Does that make sense?

Thanks - Joe
