This spawn of a community project has allowed a traditionally 16-bit IDE interface, to work in 8-bit systems.

The board has a second independant function of housing a BIOS Option ROM, that is repogrammable in-system with a simple DOS utility.
This typically uses XT-IDE Universal BIOS, and comes pre-programmed with this.

Typical uses:
> Add IDE HDD (including CompactFlash with a passive adapter, or DoMs) to an 8-bit ISA system such as IBM XT and clones.
> Add IDE support to a system without IDE support in the BIOS (like AT and PS/2).
> Add support for large hard drives to an older system like AT, 386, 486, Pentium, while using an existing 16-bit controller (Multi-I/O, Sound Card (yes you heard right) etc).

By default the XT-IDE BIOS comes configured for:
Use the XT-IDE Card's IDE controller at 300h, no IRQ.
Boot first hard drive unless user presses A for floppy.
Any of the above can be changed on purchase, or in your own time with the simple DOS utility.

DIP switches and jumpers control:
I/O port for the onboard 8-bit IDE controller (300)
I/O port for the Option ROM (D0000)
Option ROM Enable
Option ROM Write-protect
Compatibility mode and fast mode (~1MB/s)
Provide 5V on IDE pin 20, which can power some DoMs and CF adapters.
