I started wondering "at what point did BSD introduce IDE
support?". Both the NetBSD 0.8 (April 1993) and the 386BSD 0.0 (March
1992) releases claim IDE support, so maybe my memory's playing tricks
on me. 386BSD 0.0 does say that the distribution is made for a
machine with a 387 coprocessor, which I didn't have.

Anyway, this is way offtopic, I just wanted to set the record straight.
