Sometimes rooster voodoo takes awhile to reach it's full potential. You probably did that BIOS thing just as the rooster was taking effect.  I've never heard of a BIOS giving anyone troubles before.

Good Luck

Is it my imagination, or is dsl-1.5 more responsive/snappier than good ''ol dsl-1.1 (didn't upgrade for a while)?

Seems more responsive to me on a toram boot!

It is not your imagination. The latest review at gnuman also noticed and mentioned this.

Part of my reorganization was to not to use perl during the boot up to desktop process. Not loading an additional interperter, and a big one at that, helps make for a faster boot. Also the hack John did with single click icons make the system seem faster too.

Running at toram DSL is really instant computing with many of the apps. It's such a pleasure.  :)  That is why I love DSL so much!

I must say the new fluxbox theme is great.  This is the first time since I started using DSL that I'm using the default theme.  I even have the desktop icons on now just to complete the look.  DSL is definitely achieving a high amount of polish to compliment it's rock solid functionality.  Great Job Guys!
