Default Re: IRQ Buffering to improve performance

I think this is bogus. The "tweak" may be loosely based on a setting available in an earlier version of windows (around 3.1 would be my guess), but it almost certainly does nothing in Win98.

IRQs and RAM really have no intrinsic connection, so the idea of assigning RAM to some IRQ has no meaning. A specific software driver can use an IRQ and also use RAM, but that does not indicate any relationship between the two at the level of hardware or the OS.

If anyone can find some technical information on how this supposed tweak would work, I'd be very interested in reading it.
