i works for me as dma is not enabled in my kernel by default but if dma is already enabled then it wont achieve a great deal. run hdparm -Tt /dev/hda before and after that command, that'll show you if its made a difference or not
Thanks... Ran the commands but the difference was negligible. Was the command temporary or is this something that clutters up my config files somewhere...? Tryin to keep it as clean as possible. I remember my first windows hd file folder tree...
