I'm having trouble installing Slackware (or any other Linux distro, for that matter) on an old Compaq Prosignia 500 server. Problem is, I get the following messages when booting (I have added a Promise FastTrack TX2 (PDC20270, pdc202xx) PCI IDE controller):

PDC20270: IDE controller on PCI slot 00:0e.0
PDC20270: chipset revision 2
PDC20270: not 100%% native mode: will probe irqs later
PDC20270: neither chipset enabled (BIOS)

I know that this means that CONFIG_PDC202XX_FORCE is not enabled in the pdc202xx module. What can I do to enable this so that I can install? This problem does not appear on RH9, but I've since wiped my system clean & don't have access to another working Linux system to recompile another kernel with what I need.

Any advice would be appreciated.
