About the batch thing, won't that only run 1 program at a time starting the second after the first is finished?
Has anyone found any good free bios updates? Someone told me about one called Drbios when I first started working on my mp3 player. It looked pretty good but I didn't feel like paying for a bios update.
I put both my hard drives on the primary channel last week and cut a few seconds off my boot time.
