Yep really. Other people reported the same, hdparm -tT shows btw:

 Timing cached reads:   388 MB in  2.01 seconds = 192.64 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  212 MB in  3.00 seconds =  70.60 MB/sec

So the harddisc isn't slow (udma 133), it's a 2ghz box. And as
explained, i tried changing the filesystem, too. Also i tested it in
windows XP with the same Box - There it's fast.
Any other things i should test?

Yep. I asked here because i thought maybe someone is working on that
(as i said seems like many ppl having that problem)

Nope, in Windows fast, and there's a bug report for it. I try to fix it
myself. Hoped that someone has a unoffical patch or something like that.
