	Ah yes, a little info that may have helped.

	Mailman is version 2.1

	I am running an IDE Mirror. The disks seem pretty quick doing

[root] /archives # dd if=/dev/zero of=foo bs=1024k count=100
100+0 records in
100+0 records out
104857600 bytes transferred in 3.218110 secs (32583596 bytes/sec)

and archiving is turned on on all the lists.
