Hrm. That's three different controllers, counting mine (Acer Labs
M5229 rev. 0xc4). Well, unless your Asus motherobard has a Via IDE
controller, Luke, of which there's a pretty fair chance.

Maybe I'll try trading the UDMA 66 10 GB drive with the UDMA 133
160(ish) GB drive to confirm Matthias's experience.

Orthogonally: do we even support UDMA 133 yet? (I remember reading
about stuff for UDMA 100 going in post-1.5, but I don't know that
I've seen any 133 talk go past.)

Perhaps importantly: do we support 48-bit LBA? (Yes, I could go look
for myself, but I'm at work right now.)
