PATA/SATA DVD Drive Compatibility

When the PATA DVD drive (541-2110) reaches End Of Life,
it will be replaced by the SATA DVD drive (541-3493).
This transition will require redesigns, and thus new part numbers, for
the associated disk backplanes and connector boards on affected platforms.

The following table illustrates the compatibilty of the
PATA and SATA DVD drives with the old and the redesigned components.

NOTE that backplanes and connector boards must also be of the same type
(i.e. PATA and SATA components are not compatible with each other).
