siimage driver

A couple of questions if you please.

1) When I compile the siimage driver into the kernel, the ide buses are
scanned in the following order:
  IDE0 - SATA primary - hda, hdb
  IDE1 - SATA secondary - hdc, hdd
  IDE2 - ATA tertiary - hde, hdf
  IDE3 - ATA quandrary hdg, hdh
I want the ATA to be IDE0/1 and SATA to be IDE2/3. I have noticed from
some of the posts about the siimage driver on the ASUS nforce2 mobo this
is the apparent order scanned. My mobo is an Abit NF7-S nforce2. Is
there someway of controlling the order of scannin the IDE buses? I
tried append="ide=reverse" to no avail.

2) To try and get the nforce2 IDE buses scanned first, I compiled
siimage as a module, but when I did an "insmod siimage" I get an
unresolved external, "noautodma", in siimage.

I'd appreciate any help you can offer.
