NAME

       ide_info - IDE device description tool

SYNOPSIS

       ide_info device

DESCRIPTION

       Ide_info  opens the specified IDE device file, and retrieves its device
       identification information.  Its output is a set of Bourne-style  shell
       commands  to define the MODEL, FW_REV, and SERIAL_NO variables based on
       this information.  The PCMCIA configuration script for IDE-type devices
       uses  this  utility  so  that  the serial number can be used to specify
       configurations for particular cards.
