my friend has a very slow harddisk on a "fast" PC
I've turned on the DMA of his HD and gain a bit more transfer rating, but are there more ways to gain up your HD

these are the things I know about his system:
- win98se
- P4 1,5gb
- 512 ram
- nvidia video card
- onboard sound card
- 25 hd (partitioned into 4 parts
( primair 3.5gb, secondair 7/12/2.5gb)
- HD name: fujitsu
