IDE in Mode 1 (Sandpoint) how ?

hi all,
The Sandpoint user's manual says that WinBond's IDE controller is disabled in mode 1 (s3-down, s4-up), but MontaVista's kernel works in mode 1 with IDE support!
How is this possible ?
 Moreover, the kernel we had built ( not from mVista) runs too too slow. ( altho linux comes up ). The kernel
boots fine and fast but once INIT comes up,
systems slows down like crazy..( unagreeable
speed ). This looks very tantalizing.

Thanx for any help
