Have you visited the home page for this list ?

There you'll see

        - The H45 logo (they donated some hardware)
        - reference to Shuttle's EPAT and EPIA parallel port IDE adapters

What more information do you need ?

These are not parport related questions, you might find some help
in the comp.os.linux.* newsgroups. I'm certainly not aware of such
massive failure in the later 2.0 kernels.

You may be able to use the LS-120 by enabling IDE-SCSI emulation,
and accessing it as a SCSI disk.

I don't remember when IDE-SCSI emulation went into the kernel, but
it was somewhat earlier than the IDE-Floppy support of 2.0.32. (Both
were done by the same person, FWIW.)
