OK, first of all, I'm *not* hardware savvy in the least, so I'm not sure what to do here.
I'm assuming that I'm not even close to getting the full potential out of my motherboard, since I noticed this lil message in my bootup sequence today, and I'm not sure how to handle it:

ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx

I don't believe this is correct for my motherboard, an FIC AZ11E http://www.fica.com/products/motherb...t462/AZ11E.stm
and hard drive, WD400BB
http://www.westerndigital.com/produc...s/wd400bb.html

I don't even pretend to know what PIIO modes are, nor what settings they should have

If someone who knows more about this could be of some help, I'd appreciate it.
