Are you using a newer distro?  The format of top has changed.  Are you
noticing high HI and/or LO values?  On older versions of top, I believe
both HI and LO are rolled into the iowait state.

If those values are high (above 30% if you ask me), then you could have a
problem with your IRQs.  The usual cause is UDMA not being enabled but I
think it could also be caused by the BIOS assigning multiple devices to
the same IRQ (in the case of add-on cards such as SCSI or RAID).
