    hdparm can't tell the speed of the platters though. - right? i did the hdparm -i /dev/hda and did not see any rpm info...

    Try using -Tt instead of -i

    Code:
    {root@Linoleum} (/home/aaron) (#) hdparm -Tt /dev/hda
    
    /dev/hda:
     Timing buffer-cache reads: * 128 MB in *0.75 seconds =170.67 MB/sec
     Timing buffered disk reads: *64 MB in *2.28 seconds = 28.07 MB/sec
    T tells you the cached speeds, and t tells you the pyhsical disk speed.

    ...but of course, thats not going to tell you how fast its spinning at, so I'll just shut up now :

    Yeah it doesn't say what the RPM's are but it can be used to speed up your disk a good amount.
