    1. SISIDE.DSK Support Netware 4.1 & 3.12 Hard disk & ASPI interface

    2. By editing c:/server/startup.ncf file, you can force the default DMA
       master mode into PIO mode by using /d0, and /d1 command.
       For example
           load siside.dsk /d0 /d1 int=E port=1f0
                ==> Force Channel 0 into PIO mode.

           load siside.dsk /d0 /d1 int=F port=170
                ==> Force channel 1 into PIO mode.

       */D0 : force HDD (master) to PIO mode

       */D1 : force HDD (slave) to PIO mode

       Command Usage as follows :
           :load siside port=1f0 irq=e  /D0 /D1

       *I/O port :
           port=1f0 => I/O port 1f0-1f7
           port=170 => I/O port 170-177

       *IRQ :
           irq=e =>  interrupt request 14
           irq=f =>  interrupt request 15

    3) If you install two channel netware driver, please install as

       LOAD SISIDE.DSK /d0 /d1 INT=F PORT=170

    4) If you want to mount the CD-ROM as one of your volumes, Novell
       lab. recommends user to use the HD & CD-ROM in different Channel.
       For example on Netware 4.1:

       LOAD SISIDE.DSK INT=E PORT=1F0  (Using channel 0 for HDs)
       LOAD SISIDE.DSK INT=F PORT=170  (using channel 1 for CD-ROM)
       CD DEVICE LIST ; (There will show a CD-ROM device # on the screen)
       CD MOUNT #     ; (# is the device number of the CD-ROM)
