I believe not having DMA enabled on the dvd drive can cause this.  On
my Dell I have hdc=noprobe in the kernel parameters in grub.conf.
That seems to be enough to keep the drive working nicely.


No, still choppy. Unless I added it wrong:

default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu

       root (hd0,0)
       kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 ro
root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet hdc=noprobe
       initrd /initrd-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6.img
