Maybe my question is more or less related to the previous one or not at all.
I do not exactly remember the error messages, but I am sometimes
using an IDE hard disk from linux with the paride.o, on26.o and pd.o
and have not succeeded in using a drive strapped as slave.

Do I need to have it strapped as a master, or is it easy to tell the driver
to search for a slave?

If I remember correctly, I am using version 0.94 of paride on linux kernel
2.0.0, probably.

Thanks in advance !
