I just bought 80GB WD USB2 hard drive. Everything works. I have 
formated it with ext2 file system, so that I can share file with 
linux. But the problem is that it is very slow compared to linux. 
When I transfered some files under linux the speed of the transfer is 
somewhere around 10MB/s but under freebsd (5-1p10) it is not more 
than 1MB/s :(

Is it running in USB1 mode? Can I make it run faster?

Thanks for your help.
