i have an ApolloPro 133 and i made that in windoze with a program from somone
called H. Oda. it was very well documented and i found tweaks for 4x
interleaving, active paging control, and read around write for the ApolloPro

i wrote the tweaks in a sheet and modified /proc/bus/pci/00/00.0 with a hex
editor ..... so there is something called setpci to make it easier? will read
the man page later :)

the fact is that i dont remember the exact bits to tweak, i'm going to load
windoze and look which bits i had to tweak again, so will mail them to you

i noticed an interesting increase in memory throughput (with a windoze bench)
can anyone point a way to test mem throughput in linux so we can test if the
tweaks work?
