The swettings for DMA can be often found in the BIOS

getting into the bios itself varies by computer model but the common method is to press DEL (delete) repeatedly during switch on until it is shown.

Some computers may use other keys eg. F2 etc and quite often it may tell you on the bottom or top of the screen as you power on

the setting itself can often be found under the hard drive settings and may even refer to UDMA.

Some Bios have a single DMA / UDMA setting that you may have to look for in there.

This setting can greatly increase the hard drive and CD ROm access times for your benefit.

DMA is Direct Memory Access : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_memory_access

It should be automatically enabled, but if it is not there will be no damage. DMA simply speeds up access.
