"Elevator ordering" and other oddities

Sorry for the interruption, but there's some really excellent
information coming out of the I/O scheduling discussions. Problem is
that I don't understand a lot of it.

Can anyone point me to a good "newless cluebie" introduction to, at
the least, the terminology. I've no formal CS training (high school
doesn't count), but I'm reasonably familiar with the kernel internals.

Again, thanks.
