I have a Ultra DMA mode 5 harddisk
When I'm installing Gentoo 1.4 stage 3 I get errors once In a while, something about dma and ide read errors, and in overall the install process takes longer than it should
when I do hdparm -X69 (which is mode 5) /dev/hdc
everything seems good for the command I input after but the other things that I do give me errors.
Even if I don't get errors (which happends once) GRUB gives me a ERROR 16 (which means something is bad with the file systems) and LILO gives my a 0x01 error?
if I rc-update add hdparm default will this solve my problem?
If so what should I exactly write in /etc/init.d/hdparm ???
