    Wrong. 100Mb/s = 100/8 MB/s = 12.5MB/s. Hard drives can write at ~60MB/s or so, faster in raid. My two raptors in RAID 0 are something like 90MB/s if I remember correctly.

    Gigabit lan on the other, could max out your hard drive's read/write speed. 1000Mb/s/8 = 125MB/s.

    other way round, 100Mb/s (megabits per sec) = 12.5MB/s (mega bytes per sec)
    b = bits B = bytes

    This is something that needs to be forced better, you would not believe the number of people who think 100Mb is 100MB, then they fail to understand the whole MiB deal.

    Well, to be pedantic, after the Ethernet, IP and TCP overheads, your down to 119.5 MiB/s, assuming a standard 1500 MTU, and that's before you've got your protocol on top of TCP.
