Table of Results

Here are the tables from which all of the charts were created. The last table contains the results from my testing with the base install of Windows 2000. You can see that the single drive tests were not much different than with SP2, but the dual-drive setups were considerably slower. In addition, using a 40-pin cable on the UDMA/33 drive made a very big difference, while in SP2 there was no difference at all.
