Again, in case the information got lost in the shuffle... before messing with any DMA modes just try telling the BIOS to put the disk in 'Large' mode.
The problem is that the BIOS misinterprets the slice table and puts the disk into a strange mode that the boot code cannot get it out of. Its got to be a bug in the BIOS since packet mode (which the boot code uses to read data from the disk) is supposed to be independant of the disk access mode.
I'm sure that there's a tweak we can do to fdisk and boot0cfg that will fix the BIOS's misdetection, but I have no idea what.
