    Maybe. 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' says "cpu family: 6" and "model :4"
    (and "stepping: 2"). I possibly misinterpreted that. Do not believe
    me when I am talking about x86 chips. :-)

    Is that important here? IDE drives in question were not connected to
    on-board controller but the Promise one. Results seem to indicate
    that this 'optimal' was important here anyway.

    There is at this moment Windows98 installation on /dev/hde1 and it boots
    so far. It got installed and it was booting regardless with these
    "other" BIOS seetings.
