    Unhappy Slow HD

    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
