Current generic suggestions: 1.) That you use the downloadable utility that is available from nearly every HDD manufacturer to test and see if write cache is enabled on the hard drive(s). You should also check in the system BIOS, as enabling/disabling this feature is sometimes user accessible. 2.) <b>Important:</b> That you install the latest set of chipset drivers for the mainboard.
Be sure you are logged in as an administrator, husker92.
As for the write cache, it should be already enabled, since Win2K enables write caching for drives by default when the system boots. You actually have to install a fix to disable the write cache for more than just one Windows session, as mentioned <A HREF="http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q290757" target="_new">here</A>, so this is probably not an issue for you, even if the tab isn't visible. But in any case, let's see if the tabs show up after the drivers are installed, especially the Software Installation Utility.
I had installed the utility and accelerator right after I installed Win2000. I checked the accelerator and it shows my HD as transfer mode UDMA - 5 and my CD as UDMA - 2, so I think you are correct and I am OK.
