Re: CHR feature requests

My thoughts on possible methods to get CHR running on a bare metal box . . . - I believe a CHR does have IDE drivers to directly manage/talk to an IDE hard disk controller and IDE drives. I'm pretty sure a CHR does not have any SCSI, SAS, SATA support/drivers. Sooo #1 a bare metal box might have to ...
