intel core 2 duo e8500
2 gb ram
2x 80 GB HDD western digital 7,200 RPM
Kernel 3.2.18-pclos3.bfq

32bit os

No LVM volume or RAID stuff,the test was done from the user home directory.

What speed do you get from "dd" command?. People usually say the speeds i
post are not high enough but  i do not remember anybody saying what speeds
are normal,expected.
