Hi FreeDOS people (and happy easter weekend :-)),

there are new, alas closed source, drivers from Jack at:


The new XIDE driver combines UIDE, UHDD and UDVD2. XIDE
requires XMS for 2 reasons: 1. Almost everybody can use
XMS drivers. 2. Performance would be bad without XMS,
while people use Jack's drivers exactly because of the
performance gains! The driver supports both disks and
optical drives and does caching. If you want, you can
still disable the caching for individual drives.

As the XIDE driver is closed source, it is not mirrored
on Ibiblio, but some users may still want to install it
and share their experiences on this DOS mailing list :-)

Cheers, Eric
