I am also seeing some not_so_great performance from my ide drive. It
is a IBM 30GB 7200rpm drive on a promise ata/100 controller. I am
also using Debian unstable, but I hope that isn't really the problem.
The vmstat output seems very erratic. It has large bursts then really
slow spots.

I am running 2.4.13-ac4, with rik's swapoff patch.

This is the command I used.

time nice -n -20 dd if=/dev/zero of=/mp3/foobara bs=1024k count=1024
1024+0 records in
1024+0 records out
0.02s user 23.95s system 20% cpu 1:57.24 total

And here is the vmstat output...
