Thanks for the link!

As for faster hard drives, the most effective thing I've found is RAID.
I'm running kernel-raid here (portable to different hardware when the time
comes), on four identical Seagate SATA 300 gig drives, partitioned up to
allow multiple raid types on the same four physical drives.  /boot is
raid-1, my root filesystem and anything I want safe is raid-6 (which
uses two parity stripes, so it's effectively a two-way data stripe plus
two-way redundancy), and /tmp, the portage tree, and anything else that's
easily replaceable or simply scratch, is raid-0/striped.

I've been VERY happy with the arrangement.
