it is not possible to boot from a regular ide controller on an ultra5,
you could boot from cdrom/floppy.... or get a symbios 875 scsi card
and boot from that.
( this is not totally true, there are some hacks to fool openboot into
booting from another ide controller, but these are evil and won't work
properly in 99% of the cases anyway. I leave googling for these hacks
up to you, you have been warned :)
