Normally I would agree, however in this scenario the system lives on SCSI,
not IDE, so doing an rmmod ide-generic, and then
modprobe via82cxxx should do the same job - but it doesn't :-(
ide_core 125272 3 via82cxxx,ide_disk,ide_cd
It has exactly the same result, cannot set DMA
Testing creation of a new initrd for the craic.
Hmm, bit confused with this debian stuff, I look inside modules.conf,
which tells me not to edit it, but rather to edit /etc/modutils instead.
However, none of the files in the directory mention ide-generic!
Its a bit annoying I must say, need to rtfm.....

Don't tell me I have to compile a kernel!
