After installing new Mainboard & adding 10gig HD
to existing 6 gig. I have very slow response from
HD. after clicking mouse on icon wait 3-8 seconds
for response. I can hear the HD clicking off & on
as it is accessed. I have NT Server& Workstation
as well as Win98 installed. Video driver is Diamond
Stealth II vers.1.31..... Mainboard is PC100.
Is it possible there is something in BIOS I can
change or is this a video card challenge?

Hmmmm.....I'm a bit in awe of putting my tuppence worth in here what with all the expert advisors that are around but.......
I assume you're still using the 6gig as your boot drive. Having changed your motherboard, it may be that your operating systems, which take a good look at your system componentry during setup may be having a bit of difficulty with the new motherboard.
I know it's something that most people try and avoid but I would back up my essentials and do a complete re-install............ah, if it don't work, the E-Mail address listed is ficticious, I'm really a Mafia Don, my dog is 12 foot tall, my children adore me and are even bigger....etc etc etc
Good luck.....ah, just looked at the date of your post......I mean you've probably figured it out by now.
