Endless Disk thrashing

Setup: (2) identical 1.2 Fujitsu SCSI drives controlled with
an Adaptec 2940. NT 4.0SP1 64 MB RAM (2) Pentium 200.

Not a bad box huh? Except it is slow as molasses in January
for disk access. The disks keep lighting up like Christmas, thrash
almost constantly and very often pulse, i.e. light up every 15-20 seconds.

I could use some trouble shooting pointers...
