Even assuming a 10,000-rpm disk, you'll bottleneck on
disk I/O: a single disk head with the normal Unix
elevator algorithm (ext2 or 3 fs) will peak out at
about 800 KB/S, because the total sequential-read
throughput can't be acheived, courtesy of all the
seeking about. I'd reccomend about a 6-wide stripe
