Status of ServerWorks UDMA

I have just installed a system with kernel 2.4.20, and it stops booting
with a message like:

        Controller is in an impossible state. Disable UDMA.

Board is a SuperMicro 370DLE (SW LE chipset). I have tried disabling
ide channels on the bios, but kernel still sees them. I have tried to
boot with ide0=nodma (is this options real, or I just have invented it ??)
No solution.

Any ideas ?
