Hey I pulled a CD-ROM out of a newer Dell and put it
in another machine, and now the drives attached to
that controller are reporting very strange probe
strings.  This has happened in two machines; I think I
may have ruined the IDE controllers on two seperate
motherboards thanks to this.  These are 586-class
motherboards by the way.
