    Hmm, so the Intel 815 and DMA doesn't mix with 2.2.x? What about
    Andre's IDE patches?

    I was hoping to stay off the 2.4 series until it stabilises a bit more,
    although I may have to upgrade to get any sort of decent performance
    out of this machine. There's a reason no distributions aren't shipping
    a 2.4.x kernel yet.

    Thanks,
    Dave
