Bet you a euro there aren't ;-)
There are no automount processes, and no automounter at all - it's not
compiled into the kernel.
% fgrep -i auto .config
# Automatically generated by make menuconfig: don't edit

What I'm having difficulty with right now is identifying what the version
number of the kernel patch is. I'm being advised to try "xfs-1.3pre" but
where/how do I get it? I've just downloaded a patch from:
But exactly what is this?
I followed the runes to download everything via CVS, but that started to
download an entire 2.4.21 kernel source tree and as I'm not on a
particularly fast link where I am, I couldn't let it finish, alas. I might
be able to do it overnight, then the differences ought to be minimal once
I have the whole thing.
Anyway, I've applied the above patch to a pristine 2.4.21 kernel, which
does appear to support the Promise cards (and the on-board IDE controller)
rebooted and am now hoping for the best...
