Setting IDE Bus speed during boot

Thanks for reading this. 

I have a Debian system, and during bootup today, I noticed these 
entries in the syslog (some lines snipped):

kernel: ..... CPU clock speed is 601.0226 MHz.
kernel: ..... host bus clock speed is 66.0802 MHz.

kernel: ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; \
     override with idebus=xx

So, I changed the boot line as follows:

kernel: Kernel command line: root=/dev/hda1 ro idebus=66

But, I got these results:

kernel: ide: Assuming 66MHz system bus speed for PIO modes
kernel: vesafb: probe of vesafb0 failed with error -6
kernel: NET: Registered protocol family 1
kernel: VP_IDE: IDE controller at PCI slot 0000:00:07.1
kernel: VP_IDE: chipset revision 16
kernel: VP_IDE: not 100%% native mode: will probe irqs later
kernel: VP_IDE: User given PCI clock speed impossible (66000), using 33 MHz instead.

... and I'd like all devices to use the bus at 66MHz, so please tell me how. Thank you.
