We did the same thing with a G3/300. Apple's IDE DVD-RAM drive has got to 
be the slowest in existence. And DVD-TuneUp won't help -- Retrospect 
reformats the DVD using Apple's driver before using it for backup.

If you want to backup to DVD-RAM, learn a great deal of patience or find 
a faster drive. We learned that the hard way.
