Hi there, I can't seem to find the enable DMA option for my hard drives or controllers in Windows 2000.

My system specs are below:

P4 1.6a
Abit BG7
512 MB RAM
Intel chipset drivers (installed)
SP2 (installed)

My bios is set for the "AUTO" option for both hdd's.

Yes I already installed the Intel Application Accelerator program. So that automatically enables it?

you can check by going control panel => system => hardware => device manager => ide ata/atapi controllers => primary (and/or secondary) ide channel => advanced settings.
your dma settings are there and you can change it if you need to.

good luck
