SATA question

maybe I spoke to soon.  While looking at dmesg in prep for doing
a custom kernel for my new server, I noticed an oddity.

ad4 - DMA limited to UDMA33, device found non-ata66 cable.
ad4 - <SAMSUN HE160HJ JF800-24>

Is this telling me the system recognized my 
160GB 7.2K RPM Serial ATA 3Gbps 3.5-in Cabled Hard Drive as 
a UDMA33 ?

thanks for any info on this.
