HOWTO - Speed up IDE HD's

hi, here is a vary short HOWTO about speed up IDE Harddisks:

open file /etc/init.d/hwtools and insert this lines:

if command -v hdparm >/dev/null 2>&1; then
# insert begin
   hdparm -c3 -d1 -D1 -k1 -u -X68 /dev/hda
# insert end

Parameters are:
-c3 <- use 32bit I/O with write sync
-d1 <- using dma on
-D1 <- on-drive defect managment on (hd firmware)
-k1 <- keep dmu settings over reset on
-u1 <- umask on
-X68 <- 64(UltraDMA) + 4(UltraDMA mode 4); 

good luck
