+If you are using the driver as a module, you can specify your ports and IRQs
+ # insmod mcdx.o mcdx=0x300,11,0x304,5
+and so on ("address,IRQ" pairs).
+This will override the configuration in mcdx.h.
+This driver:
+ o handles XA and (hopefully) multi session CDs as well as
+ ordinary CDs;
+ o supports up to 5 drives (of course, you'll need free
+ IRQs, i/o ports and slots);
+ o plays audio
+This version doesn't support yet:
+ o shared IRQs (but it seems to be possible - I've successfully
+ connected two drives to the same irq. So it's `only' a
+ problem of the driver.)
+This driver never will:
+ o Read digital audio (i.e. copy directly), due to missing
+ hardware features.
