building a 2.0.18 kernel w/ basic networking and
SCSI driver and most features as modules.

This is really disappointing. And the time does *not*
improve with second make on an idle system (most

AFAIK this compares to a 200MHz Cyrix or Pentium.

Is this typical, or do I have some problem with my setup?
