[bf1942] windows vs linux

I'm using Mandrake 9.1 on Kernel 2.4.21... 
One SCSI does all the games, another all the web sites
And the third is purely for downloading files.
It helps spread out the work load... Oh and an 
Intel onboard nic.

I have the same problem from time to time...

what kernel are you using?

it never started for me until i went to 2.4.18 and above.
At least, thats when i started noticing it.

I think they changed some process scheduling that made hlds behave
differently.... thats about all i can think of.
