Odd sound during network activity
Whenever I browse pages with Firefox (1.0.6) on Slackware 10.1, something inside the computer makes an odd grating noise, almost like the CPU is at 100% usage. It could be the hard drive, but most likely it is something with the ethernet cable, network card, etc.
However, these sounds don't happen in the Windows XP partition on the same computer (and same hard drive).
Any ideas why this would be happening? Maybe some option I set for the network or hard drive (like dma?).
Thanks, the noise is a little grating during high network use.
