    I have an internal IDE Castlewood Orb drive that I cannot use with Linux.
    Last I looked into the problem, the IDE guy was having problems getting
    Castlewood to release the specs necessary to build an appropriate driver
    for it. You might be running into a similiar problem. I have no idea if
    Castlewood got around to getting him the information he needed, but I half
    suspect not.
