My gateway system (G6-200 XL) came with a tape drive, i believe an
iomega ditto internal unit. I'd like to do backups now that my hdd is
making strange noises, but I have no idea where to start in the kernel
ftape makefile. My docs that came with my computer don't tell my

How can I find the correct values for FDC_BASE, FDC_IRQ, and FDC_DMA?

Will I have to make the devices after booting the kernel or will the
automatically appear? If I do have to make them, how can I do that?

Sorry for being so clueless. :)
