  Sure it will be 2 minutes on the laptop and 7 minutes on the big system but as I said in my other email that is acceptable and no one will listen too us (for good reason) if we bitch about it. It is when it is 4 minutes on the laptop for configure and build and 1 hour on the big machine for configure and build that we have the right to scream and yell.
