I could do that soon

But I don't want to use DMA on this drive (/dev/hde) anyway.

In the BIOS I turn DMA off for /dev/hda and /dev/hdc,
but they still show up in /proc/ide/.../settings as 
using_dma 1.

So is the kernel ignoring the BIOS DMA settings?

32-bit transfer mode is on in the BIOS though.
