Various parameters of a hard disk can be set using hdparm.
This is required sometimes when you notice your system becoming
sluggish everytime the hard disks are accessed (see
Section 26.4.1). The same process can help with
access to CDs and DVDs when, for example, you find that watching a DVD
is very choppy (stop-and-start) (see Section 26.4.2).
