Indeed.... many disk performance problems go away when you add more
RAM (up to a point, of course).

And BTW, there is very little difference between a 7200rpm SCSI and
7200rpm IDE drive these days, assuming that the IDE drivers don't
totally suck.  Of course, you can buy a 15K rpm drive in SCSI, which
would be faster.
