Actually this depends on the MB. On mine for instance (Athlon also, but
not IWill), the PCI bus is a quotient of the oscillator and the FSB is
a multiple of the PCI and the CPU & ev6 are multiples of the FSB.
speed is also a multibple of PCI. In this case increasing the FSB
doesn't increase the PCI. Mine has two crystals 100/133 jumper con-

Anyway this is probably getting way off-topic; although I'd kinda like
to see Dennis' output of both buffered and sustained output. Looks
like a hw config problem. Mine for comparison:

Maxtor 13.4 Gig 5400rpm ATA66
Buffered: ~170 - 175 MB
Sustained: ~24 MB inner ~26 MB outer
PCI: 33 FSB: 100 Memory 128M@133 CPU: 750Mhz EV6: 200
