With my Abit KT7 motherboard, I can now use the install kernel as it is at 
2.4.x.  Unfortunately, it is complicated slightly by the fact that the 
Boot Offboard Chipset First Support option isn't compiled into the kernel 
used on the install CD.  Would it be possible for this to be compiled in 
for future releases?  I don't think it enlarges the kernel by more than 1K 
and would help people with my situation.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert CD and boot off it
2. Try typing expert ide=reverse at linux prompt
3. Doesn't work - gives message in kernel bootup ide=reverse unknown option
