Your problem is that 9 gig drive.

You would be better off with 7- 2 gig drives with news groups spread 
across them based on post volume and size.

This way i/o is spread out.  With scsi, a device can go off the bus for a 
bit as it dishes around, leaving the controller able to ask another 
device for something in the mean time.
