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 out-
       put  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.
