I saw noticable performace increase by tweaking my hdparm settings. I did this by adding a line to /etc/conf.d/local.start that turned on dma, umasked irqs, 32-bit i/o, and some other things with hdparm.

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=51&highlight=hdparm is a good resource.

You can also set it using the kernel option
Quote:
make menuconfig
ATA,IDE...->IDE,ATA->Use PCI DMA by default when available

the help talks about some problems with certain boards, but well it works for me.
