Your IDE disk drive is the big problem, it needs a lot of CPU supervision so
swapping gets very very CPU intensive instead of being just a queueing
operation with the card doing the smarts. 2.0.0 should be about as good as
we can get on IDE (its a lot better all around for swapping than 1.2 as it
uses very good algorithms now).
