Thanks Gray. I recompiled with mandrake 2.4.21.
Still no drive. Should CONFIG_BLK_DEV_ATARAID_PDC be built
*into* the kernel rather than as a module? I woldn't think
it would matter if I'm not booting linux from that drive.
Oh.. the BIOS picks up the harddrive on D1 when the PDC chip
is booting (before lilo comes up).

cat .config | grep PDC
# CONFIG_PDC202XX_BURST is not set
