I will vouch for this having just loaded a ~1Gb database on my laptop - it
takes about 2-3 times longer on IDE here than it would on an otherwise
similarly specified machine with SCSI disks - this is because IDE has a
greater need to serialize the multiple reads and writes required for this
operation ....
