When Windows loads, perhaps. But when you deal with large files on 
relatively current drives everything that can use a DMA mode will have

VIA and Intel southbridges which should enable DMA mode in WfW as well.

As a fix, you can use the Mitsumi CD-ROM driver and the 386 file that 
comes with it - this works around this problem, somehow.
