    Benchmark your hard drive using Sisoft Sandra. Usually if DMA is not enabled you will get a very low score. http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0...st-7-1.4376184

    Start/Settings/Control Panel/System/Device Manager/Disk Drives/Your HDD/Settings/DMA Option

    I'd personally stick with the default Windows 9x IDE Busmaster Drivers. Just enable DMA and you'll be all set
