RE: IDE Bus Speed



You can't change the IDE bus speed. It's set to 33Mhz (66Mhz if you have a
MBrd with 64Bit slots). The 266Mhz bus speed you are refering to is the
CPU-Memory Bus, and the board will run at that speed without problems.

However the IDE bus TRANSFER rate can be changed using hdparm (--help for
parameters)

Subject: IDE Bus Speed


In reading the boot information for my RH8 system, I noticed that the
system defaults to 33MHz.  It also says to set it using IDEBUS=XX. 
Where do I set it at (I assume in grub.conf, correct?) and what are the
limitations of it (i.e. I've got a 266 MHz system bus....can I set it
that fast?)  Any input would be greatly appreciated.....just learning
Linux, and need to tweak the machine out for UT2K3.

Thanks in Advance!

Chris
