hdparm WD Caviar 1.2 gig and 1.2.9

I just installed 1.2.9 on my news server which has a PCI IDE controller
and a WD caviar 1.2 gig EIDE drive.  I looked at hdparm and don't notice
any increase in throughput -- should I simply run hdparm /dev/hda at
boot time to yield the most increase in throughput?

Right. Have a look at my hdparm-Settings:
-------------------------Settings from /etc/bcheckrc---------------------
#speeding up System
        echo "Harddisk-Tuning..."
        /usr/local/bin/hdparm -S 0 -m 4 -a 4 -X 11 -u 1 -k 1 /dev/hda
        /usr/local/bin/hdparm -S 241 -m 4 -a 4 -X 11 -u 1 -k 1 /dev/hdb
        /usr/local/bin/hdparm -S 241 -m 4 -a 4 -X 11 -u 1 -k 1 /dev/hdc

hdc is the same drive as yours. WD-Caviar 1.2 gig Drive. I get with an
Enhanced VLB Controller running on 40 NHz VLB Bus-takt 4.21 MB/s
estimated Data throughput :)

I desaktivated the Poweroff-Timings of my Root-disk, since some jobs
always make it come up again. Every 31 Minutes, it starts again :( So

1. WD Caviar 1.2 GB drives

Has anyone else had this problem? I have a WD Caviar 1.2 GB drive and
it seems to be slow as hell! What my friend's Conner drive can save in
half a second, my drive takes about 7 seconds :(.
Not only in Linux, but in DOS, too. So it must be the hardware that's slow..
And someone was telling me the WD hard drives were fast.. sigh
