More or less my problems.  Though I was able to compile the 
drivers for 2.2.14, I can't seem to mount, or fdisk, or do anything.  It 
seems to me like the 2.3 initialization does not work under 2.2.  I've 
compared it to m-systems' code, and to a book I have, and it what 
is written should work for modules, not for kernel drivers, which is 
exactly what happens.

If anybody was able to fix this, I'll be glad to see what they did.  I'll 
work on it myself, when I have the time.
