I am preparing to modify ide-cd.c and supporting routines in order to
access the 3 platters in my Sanyo 3 disk changer, and was looking for a
few hints. Should I treat the three platters as partitions (ie hdc1,
hdc2, hdc3, etc) or would it be more correct to define new devices for
this unit. I am fairly new to kernel modifications, and are there any
good documents available describing the multiple levels of driver code?
Any help would be appreciated!
