What are the file system parameters?    It is easy to make ffs go slow if it is
not set up properly.

Also remember the "fast" in ffs was designed to be fast reading, not so much
writing (on the assumption that most files are read much more often than 
they're written ... consider the contents of /usr/bin for example) and that it
was designed to operate with SMD disks, where knowledge and control is
considerably enhanced over scsi or ide.
