Let's not ask about disk or raid at this level of sanity tuning. It is
important for a newbie to take the right first step. When it comes to disks,
we start talking I/O, SATA, SCSI and the varying degrees of SATA and SCSI,
and controller cards. Then we throw in RAID and the different levels
therein. Add to that, we can talk about drivers controlling these drives and
which OS is faster, more stable, etc. As you can see, a newbie would get
drowned. So, please keep it simple. I know many people on this list are
Gurus. We know you are the best in this field, but we are not and are just
trying to improve what we have.
