You mention a fix for ide code... Is that fix applied against 2.4.20-2.54? 
I have a Pioneer DVD-ROM DVD-500M 010. kernel 2.4.20-2.54 
enables DMA by default for it. However, after reading some files 
a few ATAPI errors appear, the ATAPI bus is reset and DMA is disabled. 
More curiously is that enable IDE-SCSI support for the DVD-ROM 
and DMA, doesn't cause such errors. Why do errors appear when 
not using IDE-SCSI? Why they do not appear when using IDE-SCSI? 
Strange, isn't it? Should I submit a bug report on this? 
Now with e-mail forwarding for only US$5.95/yr
