Hmmm.  I'll be interested to see if it works!  Off the top of
my head, I'm not sure whether the RiscPC kernel would contain
support for such a device -- although if it's just IDE, it
most likely will work.  Still, if you're looking for a noise-free machine,
I hope you remembered the 2ft long PSU ;-)

The RiscPC doesn't support SMP -- the second slot is for
an x86 card -- for which there is no Linux support.
So unfortunately, it won't work -- I wish it would though, it'd be cool :)
