I don't know if this parameter is allowed by the kernel; anycase the
syntax will be:

                boot: mulinux hde=noprobe

                ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
                ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15

You can try with:

                boot: mulinux reserve=0x170,8
                boot: mulinux reserve=0x170,0x177

Sorry: in BootPrompt Howto is'nt clear what syntax is allowed for
reserve= parameter.


Mi sarebbe piaciuto concludere con un'affermazione positiva, ma
non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
