Description of problem:
during setup you should ask the user if he wants to enable the harddisk dma and
other settings. these settings are not enabled by default, and many users don't
even know that they exist, so disk access is slower than it could be (and
windows users often look at disk access as a weak point for linux)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup :-)

This is not an issue anaconda will address - it is perhaps something a hardware
browsing/configuration tool could however.
