I'm looking for a IDE-ATAPI to PARALLEL box adapter.
In fact, right now I'm using such a device from AOKIDE.
I have connected a 20Mb IDE disk to the box, with linux installed
on the disk. I boot linux by means of a floppy disk, which
once started uses a partition on the disk as the root file system.
The driver used to support the box is "on26", it manages to connect
to the box in EPP-32 mode. That makes fairly acceptable the speed
of running linux on the box.
In sum, I have a portable linux box.
Now I have two problems:
1. I purchased a second box from the same vendor (one year later than
the first one) apparently the same model. But the connexion
is stablished in 8-bit mode, and that makes too slow running
Linux on it.
2. The boxes are prepared for holding 5+1/4 wide devices but I'm
only interested in hard disks.
Well the question is:
could anyone recommend me a IDE-to-PARALLEL box:
1 capable of connecting any common IDE hard disk to it
2 beeing 3+1/2 wide
3 proven that can connect (in Linux of course) in EPP-32 mode
By the moment I only know of "Quick drive Pro" from "Datawise".
It satisfies 1 and 2, but I don't know if 3 too.
Thank you very much,
