SUSE 9.2 boot problem

Thanks for your answer.
I have switched my SATA hard drive in the BIOS.
Now the SATA hard drive is IDE-1 Master (becomes sda after boot),
and the CD devices are IDE-2 Master and Slave (hdc and hdd afetr
The annoying 25 sec boot delay has disappeared.

But still there is a 5-10 sec delay after the line 'creating devices'. (This
line is missing from the boot.log.)
And how can I prevent the system from probing ide2, ide3, ide4, ide5?

Also would like to know how to set up DMA. Should be 133 (?) for the
hard drive and 66 and 33 for the CD drives. For the CD drives I tried to
setup from within the YAST/Hardware/IDE DMA mode window but it
failed with the "Error occured while activating changes" message.

Here are the new bootup messages:

#### there is a 5-10 sec delay somewhere here; it may be normal?
