FC 5 install boot ignores ide=nodma option

I'm attempting to update my FC4 machine, for some reason entering "linux ide=nodma" doesn't work the isolinux image boots but DMA is still being used on the IDE channels and is effectively shutting down the DVD drive. I've tried booting from the boot.iso image, CD1, DVD and the flash drive image, all do the same thing.

That option is only good for the mediachecking of the media, try using noprobe options instead;
