Subjectlinux readahead setting?

I heard linux does <= 32 page readahead from block devices
(scsi/ide/que?). Is there a way to double this? I want to read 256kB
chunks from the SCSI drives, as to get the best speed. These numbers are
based on some testing and information I've got from Compaq's storage guys.
