idebus=xx speed change


I have a brand new laptop that is running Fedora.
I see the dmesg is telling me it is assuming ide bus speed of 33MHz
I assume this is at least 66MHz (or 100MHz?) and need to change that...
It says use idebus=xx as a boot param, but I am not sure how to do that.
Is there just a conf I can change, like grub.conf or something that will allow me to put that in and see if it works... Does anyone have any other related info I should know regarding the ide bus speed?

You can add it to your /boot/grub/menu.lst or to /etc/lilo.conf, depending on which bootloader you are using (grub or lilo).

For grub the entry to add it to should look something like this:

title linux
kernel (hd0,5)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5 apic hdd=ide-scsi vga=791 idebus=66
initrd (hd0,5)/initrd

And for lilo, like this:

image = /boot/vmlinuz
label = linux
root = /dev/hda5
append = "idebus=66"

If you use lilo don't forget to run lilo after you edited the /etc/lilo.conf file

Hope this helps.
