I have a no-name clone PC with an AMI BIOS and SCSI disk. In the FAQ I saw
a note about problems with slow DRAMs and fast disks, which is what I have.
However, other than buying faster DRAMs (mine are 70nsec) there was no other
fix to the problem -- I think it's a DMA conflict.
Currently I'm running pl12 fine at 16Mhz, but I would like to go back to
something closer to 33Mhz without spending big$$. The system runs DOS fine.
I tried seting the BIOS to use wait states, but this did not change anything.
Any hints or suggestions welcomed! Should I go get a 25Mhx Xtal? Will LINUX
use wait states set up in the BIOS setup screen?
LINUX is great; this has been my only major block in getting the system up.
