Lots of other factors such as the number of disks on that IDE (and the
activity of the other disks), disk activities due to other processes,
DMA capabilities, hdparm settings, etc.,. (and other factors that I
dont know of) can affect the performance.
The above is probably the best summing-up.
More than anything, the disk subsytem needs more attention
than the choice of filesystem
One should also look at net topology - a reason for the demand
to back-port 'Netfilter Bridge' to the 2.4.18 kernel was its ability
to enhance/evaluate disk sub-system throughput in a loosely
coupled manner - without getting stuck too much in a decision.
RAID surely has a role to play - whether soft/hard will become
quite irrelevant with the proliferation of headless linux
boxes in the near future.
