Default Mandrake 9.1 DMA limitation?

I have my abit Nf7-s setup running mandrake 9.1. I have a seagate barracuda ataIV 60Gb hard drive. When using hdparm in mandrake 9.1 i cannot set the dma transfer mode higher than udma2. Why is this? Can anyone provide a solution, or answer as to why this is? Thank You

P.S. Can the filesystem type i am using have anything to do with this? I am using the rieserfs.

Well, it is not the file system. I reloaded Mandrake from scratch after saving all my files and used a different file system to no avail. I am still stuck at udma2. I am going to try compiling the standard 2.4.21 kernel instead of mandrake's. Anyway, any advice or a solution would be much appreciated.

that will do it, because mdk 9.1 uses 2.4.21-pre not the final released one, and the pre one limit the DMA on nforce2 IDE to UDMA2
