Problem: In 1.2.1 (any RC) the hardrive and CD-ROM operate in PIO4 mode. Installation takes quite a while because of this obviously and I fear other operations such as Squid caching will be negatively affected by this. With 1.2 Release, the hardrive operates in UDMA66 and the CD-ROM in UDMA33.
Specs: Epox Socket 754 mobo, Sempron 1.6Ghz, 768MB RAM, Nvidia 410 chipset, 80GB WD IDE hardrive.
The BIOS on this board offers only one setting for UDMA.. Either AUTO or OFF.
Is there any way to force UDMA on?
