Default No UDMA100

I have Mandrake 9.1 (which uses kernel 2.4.21), and I can't get UDMA100 to work. I have a Seagate Barracuda which is capable of this, but when I try to do hdparm -X69 I get the following in /var/log/messages:
May 13 00:00:42 ngt016 kernel: ide0: Speed warnings UDMA 3/4/5 is not functional.

I've looked around in the kernel sources, and from what I can see nforce2 is directly supported as it should be.

I simply can't go higher than udma2, which is very frustrating. DMA is working though.

Here's some info that might help, I'm totally out of ideas:

[root@ngt016 ide]# pwd
[root@ngt016 ide]# cat nforce
