What did: System->Admininistration-> Soundcard Detection tell you?
In other words was the card detected?
Next step run alsamixer and adjust the levels of each channel.
Channels with MM at their base should be changed to 00 at their base by
typing 'm'.

I'd be very interested in seeing the command and output for that drive using
hdparm -iItT

Karl,

I use a Seagate 320 gig ES SATA drive. This is a 3 Gb/sec drive BUT - it was
shipped with a jumper installed limiting it to half that rate, and this rate
is in any case a very optimistic one. Using hdparm as suggested consistently
gives me 78 MB/sec. That seems to be as good as it gets. Also this is a very
artificial figure, I have an old (about ten years) 9 gig SCSI drive that does
about half that. It seems that the recent addition of NCQ to SATA drives
makes more of an improvement in heavily loaded scenarios but quantifying this
is not simple or unambiguous. I want to try reconfiguring this setup in raid
0 but won't be able to do so for a while. I know that another recent Seagate
drive, their 400G ATA gives transfer rates using hdparm -tT of about 50
MB/sec.

Thanks for all the responses guys, K9copy worked perfectly.

These just list what the file hdparm can do in very brief terms. And #
hdparm is not working at all well on my F7.

There appears to be something wrong with hdparm on my computer. It only
does this with all the various -tT and such:

[root k5di /]# hdparm -iItT

hdparm - get/set hard disk parameters - version v6.9

Usage: hdparm [options] [device] ..

Options:
-a get/set fs readahead
-A set drive read-lookahead flag (0/1)
-b get/set bus state (0 == off, 1 == on, 2 == tristate)
-B set Advanced Power Management setting (1-255)
-c get/set IDE 32-bit IO setting
-C check IDE power mode status
-d get/set using_dma flag
--direct use O_DIRECT to bypass page cache for timings
-D enable/disable drive defect management
-E set cd-rom drive speed
-f flush buffer cache for device on exit
-g display drive geometry
-h display terse usage information
-H read temperature from drive (Hitachi only)
-i display drive identification
-I detailed/current information directly from drive
--Istdin read identify data from stdin as ASCII hex
--Istdout write identify data to stdout as ASCII hex
-k get/set keep_settings_over_reset flag (0/1)
-K set drive keep_features_over_reset flag (0/1)
-L set drive doorlock (0/1) (removable harddisks only)
-M get/set acoustic management (0-254, 128: quiet, 254: fast)
(EXPERIMENTAL)
-m get/set multiple sector count
-n get/set ignore-write-errors flag (0/1)
-p set PIO mode on IDE interface chipset (0,1,2,3,4,...)
-P set drive prefetch count
-q change next setting quietly
-Q get/set DMA tagged-queuing depth (if supported)
-r get/set device readonly flag (DANGEROUS to set)
-R register an IDE interface (DANGEROUS)
-s set power-up in standby flag (0/1)
-S set standby (spindown) timeout
-t perform device read timings
-T perform cache read timings
-u get/set unmaskirq flag (0/1)
-U un-register an IDE interface (DANGEROUS)
-v defaults; same as -mcudkrag for IDE drives
-V display program version and exit immediately
-w perform device reset (DANGEROUS)
-W set drive write-caching flag (0/1) (DANGEROUS)
-x tristate device for hotswap (0/1) (DANGEROUS)
-X set IDE xfer mode (DANGEROUS)
-y put IDE drive in standby mode
-Y put IDE drive to sleep
-Z disable Seagate auto-powersaving mode
-z re-read partition table
--security-help display help for ATA security commands

So I can't use this for some reason.

How about the PALIT FX5200 128MB? It's in my price range and available locally.

Thanks.
