SubjectRe: (U)DMA Explained (Re: Kernel freeze on boot (.123-.125) in IDE init)
According to Andre M. Hedrick:

Could you unpack that? You see, I also own an ABIT IT5H 1.5, and I
also have a drive that reports as "(U)DMA". When I "hdparm -d1" that
drive, it keeps working -- but is it really using UDMA?
