73mb/sec seems pretty normal for a modern pata drive. I get the same
readings out of my 500gb ide drives.

My PATA MAxtor 320GB
 Timing cached reads:   1160 MB in  2.00 seconds = 579.39 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  220 MB in  3.01 seconds =  73.17 MB/sec

I don't know a lot about this stuff, but those numbers seem pretty high.
Are you sure about that?
