High QUEUE Length on Server

I have an SQL Server 2000 running on Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard SP2 and I've been getting complaints that our point of sale is crawling on a daily basis.  I pretty much concluded that it's due to our high Avg. Disks Queue Length. Whenever we have slowness complaints I do see the our Avg. Disks Queue Length is through the roof. Any idea how I can see who's making request to the SQL server causing the Avg. Disks Queue Length to spike OR any recommendations on how to better analyze the situation so I can see where I need more resources? Are there better tools I should be using other than the Performance Monitor?

Run both SQL Server Profiler trace and Performance monitor for while with an interval of 1 sec. These will capture both sql server queries and the data from Performance monitor. Once you done this, import both performance monitor log and sql trace to profiler. This gives you an overall view from both profiler and Perfmonitor. You can check which queries causes the avg.queue length spikes to go up.

Once you got the queries, tune them and recheck.
