Use hdparm to improve hard disk throughput
If you run Puppy on a hard disk, or on a CF card on an ide adapter for that matter the default disk setup is waaaaay conservative. Take a look at it with hdparm, it's in Pup.
An excellent link is: www.linuxdevcenter.com/pub/a/linux/2000/06/29/hdparm.html _________________ Pups currently in kennel X-slacko 2.3.2n and 3b6, LxpupTahr 15.02 non-PAE, and trusty Carolina/Carolite (now battleshooters 1.3-vanguard edition R2). All lean and steady pups. Oh, and Lx flavours of unicornpup for fun
