SubjectHard Disk slowdown w/ new mobo?
I just purchased a Tyan Tiger 133A motherboard.  For those who haven't heard
of it, it uses the Via Apollo Pro133A chipset, which is ATA66-enabled. I am
using two maxtor hard drives- hda=20gb hdb=25gb. They are connected with
ATA66 cable, and are ATA66 capable drives, but they only run at around 2.5
mb/sec (hdparm -t). Any way to speed these things up? I've heard they
should operate around 30 mb/sec. I remember seeing a post about this a
while ago, but I can't seem to find it in the archives. Any help would be
much appreciated - this upgrade has been hell.
