Which part took 40 minutes?  Was it a "complete" installation or a customized
one ?

A full redhat install can indeed take a while.  But it is unclear if you are
referring to simply the time spent loading from cds or the complete process?

I've found a `cut down' custom installation of around 300-400 packages (around
700M) usually takes about 10 minutes on a 2450 with a PERC (RAID1) container
just for the last step (loading packages from cd).
