DMA Problems

Well in my original email I said:
I switch it on:
~@kokslick110:~$ sudo hdparm -d1 /dev/hdb
 setting using_dma to 1 (on)
 using_dma    =  1 (on)
So it turns on and then it is echoed as being on, but having to manually do 
this everytime I switch the computer on is annoying. Also I have done several 
installations of breezy due to me messing up the system and I know for sure 
it worked as described in the Wiki before, but on this latest install it's 
not functioning. Perhaps it could have been an update?
