Well I have just upgraded my host to twinned 360gb drives (Mirrored) a gig of RAM and it's running twin 3.2 Gig processors and on a multiple word search (Five words searched) it manages to whiz through an index of seven million in less than a second which is qiute speed increase so it may be something to do with the make and access times of the drives and the memory which is in the host.
The system runs red hat so I am not sure if the operating system may have some influence on it.
But if we can compare notes we may be able to find out what makes some systems slow down.
All the best
