Unhappy Dma

I use 2 H-D in SATA not in Raid...
Should i enable DMA for them...
I mean...is the sata used by SUSE 9.0.

Becouse I have the impression that the HD runs quite slow...
I tryied to install the nForce Drivers but the install dosn't work...

Thanks and sorry for my ignorance...

SuSE sets whatever mode your HD is, mine is UDMA133 and you can see that on boot or in the IDE DMA mode in YaST.

It maybe due to the nforce drivers thenselfs, SATA have not got that good support in Linux are the moment but 2.6 is better.

2.6.2 rpm's are HERE for SuSE.
