I caved and upgraded to 2.4.5, something I dislike doing with Debian.
2.4.x has better gfx card & AGP support. Anyway, there is an option
have udma switched on with the drives. Oh well.

Is there an agreed-upon place to perform the hdparm shenanigans during
boot? I would imagine early on...

OK, getting more esoteric now -- is anyone running dual monitors? I
finally got my G450 running with KDE2 but the window manager doesn't add
decoration to the windows on the 2ndary monitor, i.e. I can't move
windows and they don't get mouse focus.


Slow preparation, fast execution
