On   6 Jul, this message from Ira Weiny echoed through cyberspace:

Here's what I have in config.opts on my TiBook:

include port 0x1000-0x10ff, port 0x1400-0x14ff
include memory 0x80400000-0x807ff000, memory 0xf3000000-0xf33ff000

This seems to work well; a modem card gets ports at 0x1000 and dos work

Note however that IDE on PowerMacs is a bit of a mess; things like you
need PowerMac built-in IDE support compiled in to get an IDE add-on
board working even though the box in questions doesn't have any built-in
