If you can't get the dma=1 switch to work at bootup, then you could
resort to doing this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local...

Or use the files in /etc/sysconfig that are designed for this


harddisks = defaults for all harddisks.
hadrdiskhd? = per drive defaults for ide ( hd? )devices.

look at/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit for details on how those files are used.

If you have a per device file the harddisk check ($hdmedia) is ignored.

So if hdd is a cdrom, harddiskhdd is used if present, but harddisks is not used.

Also, I have had no problems using the ide-cd option dma=1 on any Red Hat kernels.
