For starters, how do you measure _bits_ per second? "7Mbits/sec" sucks for FTP over 100baseT networks. 7M bytes/sec is about right. Odds are you have your bits and bytes mixed up. At some point you have to consider your HD hardware. 1M bytes/sec of random access isn't bad. -- David Kelly N4HHE, [EMAIL PROTECTED] ===================================================================== The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its capacity -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
