Yes, that last post is mine. I couldn't remember my logon password while at work.

I've noticed that the mainboard's L3 cache can have a large influence on disk caching. Have you tried any disk benchmarks, DMA enabled, with the mobo's L3 on and off? Maybe HDtach would show something.
I would be curious to see your results.

Yes, the K6-3+ is accurately recognized at bootup by name. I know nothing of programming but it would appear that the BIOS writer left something out of the Write Allocation routine.
I've tested this K6-3+ 400ATZ on other machines and Write Allocation was enabled correctly on them...
