Your supposition's correct, Intel does not recommend disable write caching, quite on contrary, it's only an "exercise".
You can see that in: http://www.intel.com/support/ssdc/hpssd/x25m/sb/CS-031542.htm
valdir, thanks for your answer.
I agree with you that write-caching should be left ENABLED.
Then, this page is very confusing: http://www.intel.com/support/ssdc/hpssd/sb/CS-031690.htm
I think Intel should definitely specifiy that it should NOT be done! (then what is the purpose of this tutorial, I wonder...).
