Now that I'm thinking on it, are you *sure* it is IDE-related ?
I'm sitting in fron of a SCSI-only box rigth now, and it feels slow as well
when doing a I/O (a 'make depend' in /usr/src in my case).
Could someone confirm the same behavior with a scsi box ?

I really should try to find some time to install this 1.3I CD I have at home
and see what happens. Sigh.
