Description Luca Barbato gentoo-dev 2005-03-08 16:50:31 UTC
Let me quote the description about CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE_PMAC_ATA100FIRST

 This option will cause the ATA/100 controller found in UniNorth2        
 based machines (Windtunnel PowerMac, Aluminium PowerBooks, ...)      
 to be probed before the ATA/66 and ATA/33 controllers. Without       
 these, those machine used to have the hard disk on hdc and the       
 CD-ROM on hda. This option changes this to more natural hda for      
 hard disk and hdc for CD-ROM. 

Device drivers -> IDE ->

[*]     Builtin PowerMac IDE support
[*]       Probe internal ATA/100 (Kauai) first 

Sometimes users got problems in booting the first time because of that.

Sorry, but the installation instructions shouldn't start dealing with possible quircks people can come across. It's a generic installation line. For this kind of support, I believe the forums and IRC are a better medium, or perhaps a support-specific database.
