Received no response on this from netbsd-help, so ...

I am runnning NetBSD 0.9 and X in  8 meg of memory and I seem to 
spend all my time swapping, also loads from disk seem to take forever.  
I think I remember someone having an alternate (to wd) disk driver?  
Is there such a thing ?  Where ?

In general, my question is: Is there anything I can do to speed up disk 
IO without new hardware (I am running on a notebook) ?

Thanks in advance,
