I'm trying to add a PATA drive to a machine based upon a DQ965FG 
motherboard.  The BIOS sees the drive quite happily, but FreeBSD sees 
nothing.  I vaguely seem to remember some discussion about trying to set 
up PATA CD-ROM drive with this board, and I think a kernel patch was 
proposed, although I can't find any references to it at the moment.  I'm 
running 6.2-RELEASE with a custom kernel, if the configuration file is 
relevant, please let me know and I'll post it.

Any advice gratefully received,
