IDE vs EIDE vs SCSI

Am I correct in thinking that SCSI disks under Linux perform way
better than IDE due to using DMA ? How about EIDE ?

Does the kernel do any disk caching beyond what is done on the disk drive;
ie. repeat read accesses to a file faster than single reads ? If so, is
this something that can be tuned?
