I'd be interested to know what the "*" means next to the "1" in those 
Hardware RAID tests.

I'd also like to know what the significance of the "1000" and "100" 
under the "MB" column is - is that how much cache RAM was added to the 
SCSI/IDE controller? or how much RAM was on the motherboard?  or is it 
the on-disk cache as supplied by the manufacturer?

It's hard to accept the numbers as plain and simply as they're 
presented, when you're shown that an IDE drive has three to five times 
the performance of a SCSI drive in the same machine.
