Hi !

With the ide patch in kernel 2.4.17-r3 there are 2 new options:

IDE Taskfile Access
IDE Taskfile IO

Is it safe to turn these options on ?

I found nothing about these options in the internet.
Only the page http://www.linuxdiskcert.org, but there is only the patch, but
no
informations about this.

Can someone describe these 2 options ?

Thanks

Silvio
