Subject: Data rates to disk

I am trying to write big buffers of data to disk but it takes hours (well,
not exactly) to do it, even though I have a fast (66MHZ) PC with an
ADAPTEC-Controller and SCSI-disks.

What I do:

	char data[1024*2000];
...

	write(path,data,sizeof(data));

This takes about 12 seconds on my PC, even though I have set buffers to 99.

Is there a way to speed things up, like changing something in dos or
setting different buffer sizes in dos - djgpp ??


Please answer also by mail.
