same here ralph (as posted before) forcing fast writes doesn't enable fast writes...

(update) i looked in my bios settings, fastwrites are enabled there, might be that this particular card doesn't support it? i'd attach my various /proc information for the experts to look at, but i dunno howto, so it will be a cutnpaste action on the bottom of this message... sorry

andy: do you think fast writes could make a huge diference?
