I have a box running three different IDE chipsets (High Point, Silicon
Image, and nVidia). You will find that almost all of the cheapo cards
(<$30) are running the SIIL 0680 chipset, which is supported by the
driver of the Linux kernel enabled with CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SIIMAGE=y.
What is printed on the chip?
Or, what do you see when you run lspci with the card installed?
Real programmers don't draw flowcharts. Cavemen drew flowcharts;
look how much it did for them.
