Description he 2000-11-16 17:49:49 UTC
The config file /etc/sysconfig/harddisks assumes that the disks used on the
system are
homegenus. I have 3 different disks, one new and supports all  the lates
bells and whistles as
UDMA/66, the other much older.  They need very different hdparm config. I
also have a motherboard with some DMA bugs so I must f.x. turn of DMA
support for my CD-R/RW drive but I must turn on by hand the DMA support for
my new IBM disk.
In future releases, make it possible to use different settings for
different disks.
