With one Slot (Card) you have to set MAX_HWIFS to 1.

Betreff: IDE, PCMCIA and MAX_HWIFS... ?

Hi there,

if I have one IDE interface on my embedded PPC board and I might use a PC
Card HDD in the PCMCIA socket, then do I have to override the define
MAX_HWIFS with 1 or 2 ?

So do I need some kind of a place holder for the IDE interface that might
appear via PCMCIA Card service?

Thanks a million.
