I have a Abit NF7-S V2.0 mainboard (nForce2 chipset + SiI3112 SATA), with Seagate S-ATA connected to Sil3112.

During boot i get following messages:
SiI3112 Serial ATA: IDE controller at PCI slot 0000:01:0b.0
SiI3112 Serial ATA: chipset revision 2
SiI3112 Serial ATA: 100% native mode on irq 11
ide2: MMIO-DMA , BIOS settings: hde:pio, hdf:pio
ide3: MMIO-DMA , BIOS settings: hdg:pio, hdh:pio
hde: ST380013AS, ATA DISK drive
ide2 at 0xe083c080-0xe083c087,0xe083c08a on irq 11
hdg: no response (status = 0xfe)
hdg: no response (status = 0xfe), resetting drive
hdg: no response (status = 0xfe)

Each "no response" message delays booting about 20 seconds.
I don't have any device connected to hdg.
I was wondering how to speed up booting, because this "hdg: no response (status = 0xfe), resetting drive" info is little irritating?
I'm running on 2.6.6 kernel (on 2.6.4 this "no response" messages also appear).
