Motherboard doesn't enable S.M.A.R.T support

I have a Gigabyte K7N400-PRO2 (nForce 2) MB with AMD 2700+ XP, Maxtor 60 GB HD (7200RPM)  with S.M.A.R.T support and another Maxtor 120 GB 8MB Buffer (7200RPM) with S.M.A.R.T support.

I couldn't find in the manual or in the BIOS menus anything rgd the S.M.A.R.T support - but when the PC is booting I can see the message S.M.A.R.T support is disabled. (this message appears twice, one per HD)

These HD's where installed on an olde PC (MSI nForce1) with AMD 1700XP + and the S.M.A.R.T worked fine there.

Can anyone help me on how to enable this ?

P.S
FYI - this MB has IDE Raid and SATA Raid as well (both disabled).

Thanks,

You need to go into the "Advanced" BIOS. While in the BIOS, hit Shift+F1. (I think it's shift, it may be alt or ctrl). I have no idea why GB decided to make the support disabled by default, but I always turn it back on. In fact I need to do this on a Mobo I installed yesterday.
