Eric,
in your IDE case you could gain performance setting up a striped LV
on hda *or* hdb and hdc.
IDE devices sitting on the same adaptor suffer from io constraints
and therefore don't give you parallel thrughput.

You already created one; see the lines above saying "Stripes 2" and
"Stripe size (KByte)    4".

That's a constraint of the LVM which will disapear in a post 1.0 release.
If you want to extend on multiple PVs you need to go with a linear LV.

*** Software bugs are stupid.
    Nevertheless it needs not so stupid people to solve them ***
