If that means while configuring RTEMS proper, that is the wrong place to do 
Joel has stated multiple times that the eventual goal is to provide RTEMS 
binaries that can be linked to applications, and it makes no sense at all to 
have multiple binaries that differ only in which ATA devices are expected to 
be present.
The configuration should either be when the application is built, or at run 
time based on initialization parameters passed to the ATA driver.
