You're unlikely to have problems with the 40 GB drive, I have a 60 GB
IBM IC35L060AVV207-0 in an Ultra 5 and it's working just fine.

Then again, hdparm -i reports:

 DMA modes: mdma0 mdma1 *mdma2 udma0 udma1 udma2 udma3 udma4 udma5 

Meaning this "mdma2" is the selected mode - not sure what that means.

However, it reports the same for both the original 20 GB disk and the newer
60 GB disk, so it's unlikely to be a major problem.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
