Hello, is anyone out there? My prior message didn't get any replies.

Anyhow, I have updated the firmware in my TEAC 32X drive and still
don't get more than 2x in cd ripping! I found out from digging around
the teac web site and news groups that there is some kind of
"expansion" utility for windows that speeds up the drive by about 10
times, but only under 'blows98. 

The drive: CD-532S (SCSI) 32X internal drive running on a Tekram 930F

DMESG (kernel 2.2.10) shows:

ncr53c8xx: at PCI bus 0, device 8, function 0

Any help would be greatly appreciated since I don't expect much help
from TEAC. Thank you.
