Make sure you've got initrd-tools >= 0.1.10.  Then create these files
(watch out for the tabs):


--/etc/mkinitrd/scripts/dma (must be executable)--


mkdir proc

cat > scripts/dma.sh <<- EOF
	mount -nt proc proc /proc
	echo using_dma:0 > /proc/ide/hda/settings
	echo using_dma:0 > /proc/ide/hdb/settings
	umount -n /proc
