Oh, I forgot to mention it, it is both a CDROM and a HD (I don't know
what it means). The CDROM is some kind of proprietary password
protection thing. After it was purchased I actually had to go to a
MSW-XP box and make that password protection thing off before the first
time I used it some eight months back. But it is very fast. 'hdparm
-tT' gave this:

[root at mamdo ~]# hdparm -tT /dev/sdc1

 Timing cached reads:   462 MB in  2.01 seconds = 230.06 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:   68 MB in  3.04 seconds =  22.35 MB/sec
