From what I see in the BIOS it just says "DMA Mode" and then Enabled or
Disabled. Unfortunately it doesnt look like any drive-specific options
to choose which speed.

Everything seems fine with all the drives until I try to start to
transfer data between them at 133 mode. So I think that rc entry you
suggested would be perfect, since that would execute before I would
start transferring any files.
