I assume you "backup" everything except the pre-install partition and
WinXP's source \i386. Using command line GHOST can override GUI's
compression up to level 9 (GUI maximum level 3).

I tried to backup all my DOS data (30MB) in my 1GB compact flash,
takes not longer than 20 mins (USB 1.1).

Since the USB driver is not intent for this kind of job, and no one
want to code a standalone USB driver, we have no choice but to accept
this kind of speed, agree?
