By the way, if someone actually attaches a raw Qubide IDE harddisk
to a PC in order to extract an image file with DD:
Since 68K CPU's are big endian, while x86 is little endian, it might
be required to do some conversion. Not sure about the QL, but on
Q40/Q60, access to the IDE data registers is big endian!
It might be required to swap every pair of bytes of input data, for
which DD has the "swab" commandline option.
