Oops, I was wrong you were right. I just looked it up in the manual. Chapter
8.3 describes how to enable the cache, chapter 9 describes the various caches
in detail. It says you have to clear two bits in CR0, the CD bit and another
called the "NW" flag.
	Hmm, Another thing that could be affecting your performance is wheather you
have shaddowed your ROMs? I would suppose you have thought of that already. 

The militia whose regulation was referred to by the second ammendment is
