Sorry if it has been mentioned before, but are you using stand-along 
hard drives for findu.com, or are they set up as a RAID? For most 
people, RAID 1 for would be more important because of the redundancy 
it would provide, but I wonder if RAID 0, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 (dunno which 
would be best for findu.com) would be better because of the faster 
access times... or are you already using RAID 0+1 so you have both 
mirroring and striping?
