Funny that, i don't know if it is related but i have been testing
kubuntu this week end (the KDE branch of ubuntu) and it refuses to let
me set DMA on my DVD drive :
hdparm -d 1 /dev/dvd
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Opehdparm -d 1 /dev/dvd
Since i am using a motherboard based on the KT600 chipset, i then
loaded via82cxxx but this didn't allow me to progress further.
As discussed earlier on this thread, the solution lies on this thread :
