FAQ
===
 Why Promise?
 ------------
 Because i think they are good adapters and the drivers are GPL.

 Can i boot?
 -----------
 Currently not. I'm not sure if it could work,
 even if the driver would be in the boot.img

 Can i watch DVDs?
 -----------------
 Yes, ATAPI-support is fully implemented, eg. CacheCDFS + MPlayer/VLC.
