It really depends on your system mate. The older and slower the hardware, the longer the install will take, and vice/versa. As long as it's still running, and you've got no errors, I wouldn't worry. If you get errors, then worry. ;-)
good luck.

Hello BCF2,

What CPU are you using, I guess over one hour to install is pretty normal if you have an Intel 80386SX-16Mhz, with not to much memory installed.

I did not timed my (test) installation, but I feed my dog went to the toilet and made the time it was busy

With kind regards,
