disk transfer rates and 36xx file servers

a few months back, there was some interesting discussion
of disk transfer rates, and what various 36xx series
machines could reasonably handle.  unfortunately, i didn't
save any of it.

here's my situation:

come spring, i'll have a 3670 and a 3650 that may function
as file servers.  i'll also have 2 474mbyte fujitsu drives,
and 4 9720-736 drives to split across the two servers.  what
kinds of data transfer rate issues am i going to be dealing
with in trying to find an optimal arrangement of disk drives?
