Can someone please translate the following:

"this utility helps change SiS IDE controller running from at PIO mode to at DMA mode under Win2000 without double restart the system."

Am I even supposed to be interested in using it?

Thank you,

Thanks Sieb :)
I guess now all I need is to find out wheather this pc is using DMA or PIO mode.
Any ideas?

All those settings are in the motherboard's Bios.

The windows drivers should tell you what mode the thing is working in...
