I have a hunch that Chuck's suggestion of DMA modes is correct.
The BIOS won't have anything to do with it, though...Linux (along
with most other operating systems) doesn't use the BIOS routines to
access disks, it controls the hardware directly.
I think you can pass kernel parameters (via your boot
manager...lilo, grub, etc) to restrict DMA modes. Google is your
friend on that one.
