The best thing is to make sure your IDE chipset is included in the
kernel, and also that you have the "Use PCI DMA by default when
available" set also, and it will automatically use it. I didn't learn
this one until recently (actually didn't hav the right IDE chipset
selected in the kernel, and didn't realize that was my problem) and was
running hdparm manually when I rebooted (only about once a month or 2)
but now I don't have to anymore. :)
