When unpacking large tarballs or copying data bigger than 20MB on a XFS file system, the system seems to freeze for about three to five seconds, HDD LEDs always on (until all caches are synced to disk?). In this time, you cannot move the mouse, type in characters etc. I see this behaviour with 2.4.18 and 2.4.19, but only on Athlon/Duron based systems, both using IDE drives. I don't see this type of freeze on a Celeron based system.
I would rather check for the IDE chipset. Is it programmed correctly? I am using an Athlon at home, and it works without any problems on XFS. (PS: This is true for RedHat 7.1; Mandrake 8.0; gentoo-1.4).
