Try to set DMA for the DVD with yast2, watch for errors in the message

works on this PC but on another machine DMA66 works. The other machine
has a new Asus DVD which supports UDMA100 but the mobo only goes up to
Somewhere in Yast there is a boot.idedma setting, in runlevel
properties, should be set as B.
Also check that the BIOS has enabled DMA for the DVD.
I changed the setting in Yast to B. Enabled it and "start now".
When I restarted to check , the "failed" message has disappeared, but when I
looked again in Yast runlevel, boot.idedma it has option B and also runlevel
5 but it says "not running".
Start up log says :
Setting up IDE DMA mode
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
Is there anything else I should do?
Thank you very much for trying to help me.
