Question Anyone know how i can turn on DMA mode for my dvd-rom?


I've done this before, but i've had to re-install linux, and have since forgotten.
A lot of ppl told me to do the hdparm -d1 <device> deal, but that didn't work for me. What did work was editing some file to turn dma mode on, can anyone tell me what that file is? Any help greatly appreciated. Oh, i'm running red-hat 8.0 btw.
