This should be a FAQ. If it already is, I would like to have a pointer to it.
To add some value to this post, you might want to have a look at the IDE spec
in the ata files.
That doesn't help with the floppy interface, though. From what I've seen of
the floppy interface, it shouldn't be too hard to bit-bang. Does anybody out
there have a write-up of the gory details?
In either case, you're probably going to have to do some buffering or acquire
your data as you are writing it to disk.
