    The PIIX Bus Master EIDE/ATAPI Device Drivers created by TRIONES 
    Technologies, Inc. has the following features:

    1.  Takes advantage of the PIIX chipset bus mastering capability
        and support bus mastering IDE on both IDE hard disks and ATAPI CD-ROM
        drives. This greatly reduces the CPU utilization and increases the
        data transfer rate.
    2.  Supports advanced data transfer timing modes. The PIO mode can be up
        to mode 4, and the DMA mode can be up to Ultra DMA/33 mode 2.
    3.  Supports LBA mode and Multiple-Block (or Multiple-Sector) commands.

    This readme file will describe the setup procedures for the PIIX Bus 
    Master Device Driver for each operating system. The PIIX Bus Master
    Device Drivers can only be used on motherboards with the PIIX chipset and
    the system BIOS must properly initialize the PIIX chipset IDE interface 
    for the Bus Master IDE operation.

    Do not use any other add-in IDE (PCI or ISA) card in the system.

    SEEVER.EXE is a utility that will display the build information for all
    PIIX device drivers. To use this utility type SEEVER and the file
    name.  You will see information about the device driver and when it was
    created. The purpose for this utility is to keep track of the different
    versions of the device drivers that might be released in the future.
