how to ensure hdparrm settings are retained over a reboot?


hi all,

i found that my hard drive performs optimally with the following command

Code:
hdparm -c3 -u1 /dev/hde
where is the proper location to set this command to run during every boot? in /etc/rc*.d? if so, how do i do that? i've never updated rc settings before. thanks.

Put the settings in the file /etc/hdparm.conf the examples in the file should be enough for you to figure out the correct syntax.
