Ok, Slackware 9.0, on a Seagate Cuda 80 GB drive (with 8MB Cache). And an older Samsung, lets ignore the Samsung drive though.
I have established that i can boost hard drive access speed using hdparm: (as root)
bash-2.05b# hdparm -X66 -d1 -u1 -c3 -m16 /dev/hda
however these settings don't stay, nor can i find anything in the man page to relate to this.
So the question is, how do i make this permanent?
Fingers crossed this resolves my system freezing while it waits for the HDD when transfering large files from CD to HDD. (If it doesn't that will be my next questions).
Any relevant webpages / advice would be greatly appreachatied. Thanks
