	There is a way to hook up an IDE interface to the PCMCIA interface of
the Motorola 8xx family of processors. The code for controling it is in
the sourcefile /drivers/ide/ide-m8xx.c . I think that there is more info
on it in the PPCBoot/U-Boot source code.

	Enough people are doing it that it made it in the kernel so there must
be documentation some where.

Hope this helps,
