I'm trying to put together a "fast" win98 system, but I'm running in to some performance issues i don't remember from the olden days.
The system is an AMD Athlon XP 2000 on a KT400 board. IDE drive is a 120GB Deskstar with an 80-conductor cable. the KT400 has a ATA133. I'm using Hyperion 4.56.
I keep getting "freezes" when it's doing a lot of HDD IO. I originally thought it was network related, because the machine almost locks up when downloading files from an in-house web server, but it completely freezes when copying large files between hdd partitions.
Is this me not remembering how poor Win98SE was, or do I have a conflict or misconfiguration somewhere?
