Is 15 minutes a good time for ripping a CD


I have just ripped a CD to my linux box and it took 15 minutes in total to MP3. Is this good and can it be improved upon. My spec is:
2000+ althlon XP
392mb Ram

If you're compressing to MP3 at the same time then this sounds reasonable.

Do you use cdda2wav or cdparanoia?
cdparanoia is slower, but better.

I am currently using the built in feature in konqueror. I have found its slower using other methods as they have to rip the song to wav format first. Is there a method that avoids this or will make it faster than konqueror.
