The User Manual says that RPCemu can emulate two IDE drives, provided
that the CD drive is not configured but, as Dave says, this seems not to

Using RPCEmu 0.8.8 on Windows, having copied hd5 into the program files
directory, set the number of ADFS drives to two, and re-booted, another
drive icon, labelled :5 appears on the iconbar. Clicking on it leads to
a message from the ADFS Filer

   Disc error 02 at :5/0000000000000000

Is this a bug, or have Dave and I missed something?
