    Add Secondary IDE channel?

    I have a Cobalt Raq2 with one IDE header.
    I would like to install another IDE header. I have a couple of junk motherboards that I can rob parts off of.
    I've already installed the 40 pin header, however, I do not know what value resistors I need and where they need to be installed. Can anyone help me?

    Didn't know you could upgrade the Raq2. On the Raq3 and 4, nothing is required except to solder in the header.

    I was looking on the MIPS-linux wiki Link: h ttp://w ww.linux-mips.o rg/wiki/Cobalt

    They had a picture of a raq2 with the second IDE header installed. The guy that did it is oriental, and I don't know how to contact him..

    This proves it _can_ be done, however, there are some specifices that need to be discussed before I'm gonna jump into it.

    (sorry for the link hacking, I don't have 5 posts yet.)

    Actually I don't see 2 ide cables going into headers so I'm not sure this is a working example... is there a reason you can't just make the drives master/slave ?
