What more do you want to know ? I've already posted here twice that the
drive works fine with Linux, and that it definitely uses the OnSpec 90c26
adapter. There's no ambiguity about it. The mail you responded to was
a response to my original announcement.

I'm not sure why you think I'm wrong - but if you download the drivers
from their web site and have a look inside, you'll see that it uses the
"EGRET100" driver, which is IDE driver for the 90c26.

I've no idea what you are talking about. The drive is IDE, not ATAPI.
