Yes, but we don't.   This is where I would normally begin a rant on how 
craptacular Linux can be at times.  But, for the sake of this 
discussion, postgresql isn't reading the data any more slowly than does 
any other program.

And we don't have the time to experiment with the box.

I know it should be better, but it's good enough for our purposes at 
this time.
