Thanks. I just tested on my laptop and it doesn't keep over reboot indeed.
My error was I just installed a new machine where DMA was off on boot and
I used -k1 -d1 and that fixed it. Well, that I built a new kernel about
that time might have made the difference too!
moseley@laptop:~$ fgrep DMA /boot/config-2.4.18-xfs-laptop
is what I see in my laptop config.
Thanks for the correction!
