DiskOnChip write performance

Hi all,
I'm using a DiskOnChip 2000 and thanks to this mailing list I'm able to
boot linux off it. 
My application needs to write big files pretty fast and I was expecting
a write speed of 500 kBytes/sec, the M-Systems DOC 2000 spec claims to
achieve this. Unfortunately the fastest speed I could obtain was about
70 kBytes/sec which seems pretty poor to me. When I asked the M-Systems
support the answers were not really helpfull so far. 
Does anybody of you guys know, how to speed it up? I'm using ext2 at
present, will another fs be faster?
I would be even glad if someone told me it can't go faster so I can stop
bothering with DOC and try something better.
Thanks in advance for any helpfull hint
Holger Friedrich
