Ah, I indeed forgot the system information.
It is a P II 333 MHZ with 256 of RAM and an UDMA 33 HD (40 GB).

Judging from your timings, this is going to take a while...

Does buildworld and installworld always take equally long, even say only
10 files changed?

Are there any pitfalls I should be aware of (seeing that this would be
the first time I attempt such a thing).
