Don't use 5400 rpm drives. It probably isn't a bottleneck, but it will
feel less snappy. I'd imagine the access and seeks times on that drive
will be blown away by a 15k scsi.

              Has any body used the IBM Blades with 5400 RPM?  Will this
cause the bottle neck if we use it? Should we upgrade the blades to the
new IBM SCSI drives before we commit ourselves in deploying Citrix. 



Any Replies is much appreciated.
