You mean, under 2.4.x?
You can tweak the DMA and other parameters by pointing to the proper
device (under 2.4.x), for example:
  /sbin/hdparm /dev/hdc
will print the current setup if your cdrom/whatever is connected as
master on the second ide interface. 

AFAIK there is nothing to tune in the ide-scsi layer...
