  Hm, ASUS M2N-CM DVI's BIOS doesn't seem to have that option.  I can
choose between SATA mode and RAID mode.  If I switch to RAID mode and
enbale the channels, no drive is recognized, even by the BIOS (I guess
only RAID sets would be recognized).  If I disable the channels, the
controller attaches as pciide without DMA support.
