	sounds like you have enough disk available.  (provided you expire 
news reasonably)  but you must be getting hammered in disk seeks as the 
news comes in and get recorded in the various files--spool, history, 
outgoing, etc.  you would be much better off with 4 1 gig drives rather 
than 1 4 gigger ;(   two separate scsi chains would help as well.

	how about some 'iostat 3' numbers
