wuah, forget what i said. it seems the correct way is to enable the
hdparm setup in /etc/init.d/hwtools and do the stuff there. hwtools init
scrip will also be started in single user mode.
i just noticited it, after reading the thread. my setup comes from the
old days, where we do now have a prepared startup script. while the hwtools
package doesn't provide hdparm, it contains the setup script for it.
my apologizes for spreading out-of-date information.
