Subjectvia busmaster driver
hi!

when i enable the ultra dma 33 mode on my computer, the disk
performance goes down by around 30 % compared to normal pio mode 4. is
this a bug, or is there any solution to get this ultra dma working
correctly ? this happens with 2.4.2 and 2.4.3 ...
i have a shuttle hot-603 motherboard with the amd640 aka Via Apollo
VP2/97 chipset. the diskdrive is an Maxtor 33073U4, ATA DISK drive (ultra
dma 66 possible).

any suggestions ?

daniel
