Info
Please read through this entire file before using this driver update.

USAGE: This driver uses an EXPANDED set of parameters from the previous
versions of SBIDE.SYS; the old parameters may NOT work correctly with this
driver.

device=SBIDE.SYS [/n] [/v] [/0|/1|/a] /d: /p:,[,] [/l:]

/n -- no plug & play (optional)

/v -- verbose (optional)

/0 -- all in pio mode

/1 -- only read commands in dma mode(partial dma mode)

/a -- all commands in full dma mode (requires emm386.exe)

/d: -- specifies the device name (/d: must match the /d:
parameter of the MSCDEX.EXE line in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file)

/p:xxx,yy[,zzz] -- xxx port address, yy irq number, zzz secondary port number

/l: -- multi-language support (optional - defaults to English)

[M] option
----------
1 for Dutch
2 for French
3 for German
4 for Italian
5 for Spanish
6 for Brazilian-Portuguese
7 for DosV
0 for English (default)
NOTE:
The specified port will be in DMA mode only if the DMA mode switches are
used before the port switches. Otherwise, it will be in PIO mode.

About DMA mode:
EMM386.EXE MUST be loaded to allow DMA mode to work. If not loaded, the
driver may crash.

______________________________________________________________________
Troubleshooting:

"Drive identity function failed" in CGA magenta/pink text - commonly caused
by an incorrect IRQ address with the /P: switch. Verify that the
parameters for this switch are correctly set.

"ICM BYPASSED" (in CGA magenta/pink text) FOLLOWED BY
"No drives found, aborting installation" - may indicate the driver is
attempting to use DMA mode (/1 or /A) when the controller does not support
this mode.

"No drives found, aborting installation" (and no other errors) - the driver
line may be missing /P: or /D: switches.

MSCDEX.EXE or SBIDE.SYS hangs - this can be caused by not having EMM386.EXE
loaded while using the /A switch on SBIDE.SYS.

NOTE ON COMPATIBILITY: This driver may not work correctly with Panasonic
574 and 581J drives. Customers with these drives should use SBIDE.SYS v1.23
instead.
