HD DMA

Recommended Posts

I know that hard drive DMA may not be set by default. I know that I copying data at about 3MBs. Way under my windows preformance. I read once how to turn it on but I don''t have the mag. Anyone know how to kick it on on a mandrake 8.2 system by chance, or where to find out?

All righty. Here I go

Hmm. That doesn't seam work. hdparm doesn't seam to exist. I'll give it another try and have a look around to see if I find something else. RH 6.1 was along time ago. Thanks anyway.

It just may not have been in the 2 disk install I got. The full thing is 3 disks I may have just found something that was missing.
It looks like thats the only real way to do it so it must be doable. I almost have this linux thing where I want it. This HD think is cramping my RTC Wolfenstein gamin''. Can''t have that, especaly since its vidio performace is better than windows.
