check out /proc/ide. for teh drive that you are looking for (eg, hda) there
will be another directory w/ model settings etc

i forget this one exactly, but you can do an lsmod or /proc/modules to see
which driver is loaded for it and that should give you a good idea.

time spent in the kernel (for interrupts etc) should be in 'system'

if you were cpu bound you should see soemthing like close to 100% user cpu
use. having large system utilization would mean that you're spending a lot
of time doing things like going to disk or network. once the server (bfv is
similar in this regard to bf1942) is runnning it doesn't go to disk a lot
(do you have logging enabled?)
