Well, there are all sorts of contributing factors, but that seems like
less than half of what you should be able to get.  In theory the max is
12.5 MB/s, but realistically, you will only get 60-80% of that, so
perhaps 7.5 to 10 MB/s?  Of course, from that figure you subtract
overhead, but for NFS it should still be kissing close to those marks I
believe, even with an Intel machine with IDE disks on one side.
