That's strange.

Yes, Uwe rewritten his driver and in this case he removed all special
patches. He said too that he not add special patches to, AB040 is simply
no longer supported by him.

I don't know if it's really available. I have the extension but got it
directly from Uwe Schneider 1 year ago. The 060 is very fast, normally a
factor of 2 (compared to 040). CPU intensive tasks are much faster than
factor 2.

Now the lack of a busmaster DMA driver for the harddiscs is the real
slowdown (and the miss of background DMA).
