This is most likely a stupid question and could be answered by an 8th grader but I just want to be sure.
Based on this technet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2008.08.pulse.aspx?pr=blog I ran perfmon on our Windows Server 2003 SP2 and need help understanding the results.

According to the article for the PhysicalDisk\Avg. Disk sec/Read "If the number is larger than 25 milliseconds (ms), that means the disk system is experiencing latency when reading from the disk". My highest result is 0.20810588. Do I read that as 20 milliseconds......2 tenths of a second..... Is this result too high for Avg.Disk sec/Read? I should note this was the highest result by a lot. The average was .007

Any help would be appreciated

A millisecond is 0.001 seconds, so your value of 0.208 is 208ms.
Just some single peak values is propably nothing to worry about as you say the average of the value is down on 0.007 (7ms), which is below the threshold of the article. Bottleneck problems is when having constant high values.
