UDMA problems with my SATA drives

I have a raptor and a Hitachi 7K250 the problem is the the raptor DMA is 133 and 7k250 is 66

That the default mode in the Yast IDE DMA Mode config
The highest value for raptor is 133 and the highest value for 7k250 is 33 in IDE DMA Mode config.

It takes really a long time to extract and copy files

What should i do?

Linux Dist: Suse 9.1
Kernel 2.6.5
Motherboard NF7 V2

When i use hdparm to display the info my raptor can handle DMA up to 6 but the 7K250 is only up too dma 2

I'm installing Americas army just now and it takes forever and my CPU use is on 99%

I really like linux (Flubox rox ) but i'm so close to go back to win xp
