hdparm kicks ass
go here, read this and then do what it says +)

[edit] go here instead! it's O'Reilly!
on my eldest drive (a western digital 6 gig) i did
hdparm -c3 -m16 -d1 /dev/hda
on my second eldest drive (a western digital 20 gig) i did
hdparm -c3 -m16 -d1 /dev/hdb
on my newest drive (a western digital 40 gig) i did
hdparm -c3 -d1 /dev/hda (because it already had multicount enabled)

tripled the speed of my 6 gig from 3~ MB/sec buffered disk read speed to 12.2
multiple of 7 on the 20 gig -> 21
multiple of 9 on the 40 -> 27

Current Mood: depressed
